WELCOME TO BRANCHES
WELCOME TO BRANCHES
Thank you for viewing our site. Branches Rest and Renewal Centers, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit religious organization. We are a Roman Catholic ministry that welcomes all who love Christ. Branches is located on beautiful Seneca Lake, NY.
The mission of Branches is to bring people closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Communion of Saints, so we may share Christ's love with others.
You are invited to attend one of our Open retreats or contact us to inquire about an Individual, Family, Corporate or Group retreat. All of our retreatants immersed themselves in a peaceful lakeside setting as we take time to “unplug” from our daily lives to pray, rest and deepen our faith.
Our Stay Connected video expresses the importance of staying connected to the Vine.
The Our Property tab, under About Us, provides a description of our property. The Branches' Experience tab will give you a sense of how beautiful and peaceful Branches is.
In the Spring we will post our Open retreat schedule.
We welcome you to visit our site often. Please share us with your family and friends! Whether you visit us online to frequent the Prayer tab, enjoy our photographs, or better yet in person at our retreats to soak up the Branches' Experience, we hope you will draw closer to Jesus and His love for you.
BRANCHES IS GROWING
Generous benefactors and the St. Vincent de Paul HOPE Fund have donated the funds for Branches' two new hermitages. Numerous individuals have donated artworks, sculptures, an altar and tabernacle.
Others have given to the progress of Branches' Prayerful Walkway in our Rosary Garden.
WE ARE DEEPLY GRATEFUL TO ALL.
Truly, God continues to provide.
OH MOST SACRED HOST
Talented Branches' retreatant,
Jayne Badano-Bidwell wrote and sang "OH MOST SACRED HOST", with the vocal accompany of
Deacon Ward Nolan.
We are most grateful that they gave permission to share their talents with you. This is stewardship at work.

REST WITH US
The word retreat means to withdraw. We invite you to “unplug” from daily life and retreat with us. We find our waterfront setting to be peaceful, quiet and a beautiful location for rest, solitude and prayer.
