Celebrating the legacy of monastic life in the middle of Brooklyn for 125 years, this short video shows contemporary scenes of the Monastery of the Precious Blood and Retreat House in Borough Park. The Sister Adorers of the Precious Blood established their first cloister in Brooklyn in 1890, and moved to the completed monastery on Fort Hamilton Parkway in 1910. Today, our contemplative sisters of the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará (Religious Family of the Incarnate Word) also live in the monastery. Their Monastery of St. Edith Stein was established in Brooklyn in 1998 in Flatlands, and the community was invited to the Precious Blood Monastery in 2011.
Scenes include the outside of the monastery, the main church, and the cloistered half of the church. (2:02) There are also scenes of the parlor where sisters can meet with guests and offer liturgical vestments, rosaries, holy cards, scapulars, parish banners and other commissioned work are also made by the sisters to support their way of life and to pray for those who will use these items. (2:37) Additionally, the film shows scenes of daily life in the monastery, the cloister, and the enclosed garden where sisters grow vegetables, pray, and enjoy time together outdoors. (4:49) There are also scenes of the Retreat House which hosts groups and individuals for periods of retreat and prayer.
