Retreats

Most Precious Blood - Sts. Simon and Jude parish is happy to announce our new retreat and prayer center in Bath Beach, Brooklyn.
The facility offers 14single rooms and 2 double rooms along with a small chapel and a larger 26 seat chapel, two kitchens, an 8 seat dining room and a larger 22 seat dining room, 4lounge areas for reading, socialization, and relaxation, a game room, a 33 seat coffee house, and a patio and private yard with tables and chairs.  The facility opens to a prayer garden holding the crucifix from the original 1927 church building as well as other statues for devotion.

While the Center is a ministry of Most Precious Blood - Sts. Simon and Jude parish, all are welcome to participate in our retreats as well as our various prayer groups that are held in the Center.  We welcome groups outside the parish to use the facility for one day or weekend events.  Please call our Director of Evangelization, Alex Quinones, for information on the retreats listed below or to use the facility for your own group.    

Retreat details

Parish sponsored retreats:
In order that as many people as possible can use the facility we have made every effort to keep costs down to a minimum.  For those attending any of the retreats listed below that are sponsored by the parish, the cost is$100.00 for the weekend.  This includes a private or double room (shared bathrooms) as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday.

For groups outside the parish:
We ask $50.00 pp to help with the expenses of the building.  Any other costs (eg: food, retreat director, etc. is up to the group to decide).  Please note that we will not permit the stoves and ovens to be used. The parish can order food for groups or groups can take care of meals in their own.

Accessibility
Please note the facility is handicapped accessible for all prayer groups.  However we are not accessible for the Lords’Day Suppers or the weekend retreats as the facility, which is decades old, does not have that capability.

COVID-19 PROTOCOLS:FOR THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF EVERYONE, ALL THOSE PARTICIPATING IN RETREATS AND PRAYER GROUPS ARE ASKED TO BE FULLY VACCINATED AGAINST COVID-19.
