Our Lady of Refuge, Foster Ave.

Our Lady of Refuge church stands at the southwest corner of Ocean Avenue and Foster Avenue. Its mailing address is 2020 Foster Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11210, telephone 718-434-2090. The website of Our Lady of Refuge parish gives more information about the church than can be seen from the street.

The cornerstone of the church is dated 1933. On a weekday afternoon, it was closed, possibly for repairs.

The Mass schedule may be found on the website.

The inscription reads in three vertical sections: Mater Dei (mother of God); refugium hominum (refuge of men); ora pro nobis (pray for us). More information about the church may be found here from the New York City Organ Project, which names the architect as Henry V. Murphy, who also designed St. Anselm's church, Bay Ridge.
