Our Lady of Refuge Church is a Roman Catholic Parish that has been serving the people of the Midwood Section of Brooklyn since 1911. Originally founded by Irish and German Catholics it now serves some 30 nationalities and three language groups — English, Spanish and Creole.

Mass is said several times per day at Our Lady of Refuge. For Mass times on Holy Days of Obligation or on National Holidays please visit the news section of this website.
