What We Do
Eternal Flame of Hope Ministries seeks to bring people closer to God through art, nature, and spirituality. We host day-trip retreats at Heaven's Embrace, our property in the Catskill mountains. We also hold events and do charitable works in and around New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Nestled 90 minutes north of New York City on 50 acres of nature's undisturbed beauty is Heaven's Embrace. At the base of a magnificent waterfall sits the Chasuble Studio-Chapel. The grounds also feature religious works of art highlighted by the Holiness Trail - the Stations of The Cross set in the natural beauty of the local area's trees and foliage.
