Eternal Flame of Hope Ministries seeks to bring people closer to God through nature, spirituality and art.

The centerpiece of this vision is a wonderful retreat property called “Heaven’s Embrace” in the lower Catskill Mountains of New York State. Amidst towering oaks and cascading waterfalls, nature opens one to beauty, mystery, and awe -- a prerequisite for the love of God.

People of all ages, ethnicities and races are welcome. Our setting is especially conducive for young people to develop a sense of mystery and reverence, allowing them the opportunity to express their experience in art. The fine arts as well as music and poetry, allow them to remember, reinforce and re-present their experiences to others.

This setting and its creativity lead to an implicit spirituality. We articulate this in the Roman Catholic Tradition through communal prayer and the celebration of Mass. All people of good will are welcomed to join us as we recapture, in word and image, the whisper of the Spirit in nature given to us by God.
