New Redemptorist mission in Albania...
We are well used to the fact that the numbers of active Redemptorists in Europe is diminishing: a concernshared with most Religious Congregations. However, we, in faith, take this as an opportunity: to give ourselves generously to areas we identify as missionary: whether in the developing world or closer to home. The Redemptorists of Europe have, this week, initiated a new missionary community in Tirana, Albania. Three confreres are involved in the new mission: Laureano (Madrid Province), Andrzej (Warsaw Province), Dominic (London Province). Each will be a sore miss to their home province, but each is a generous investment in the Redemptorist mission of the evangelisation of those most in need.

Fr Provincial writes Aug 2014...
30th August 2014
Dear confreres and friends,
St. Augustine's feast this week always gives me great hope. I find a quotation from the 9th Book of the Confessions very encouraging: "I did not know how sick I was; nor did I know how well I could become". Perhaps this can give some thought for reflection.
At the beginning of the month I informed you that Fr Gerry and I would visit Bishop Eton for the feast of St. Alphonsus. I was happy to see Fr Barrie O'Toole in good form and dealing with the chemotherapy, and all the confreres coping well with various infirmities. Archbishop Kelly and Bishop Ralph joined us for a lovely Eucharist followed by a marvelous lunch and celebration together with our Redemptoristine Sisters.
I likewise found our confreres in Zimbabwe in good space. I was there on a pastoral visit to do a consultation about proposals for the next Regional government which will take office at the same time as our next Provincial government. I did send to each community in the Province a letter which I wrote to all the confreres in the Region outlining the achievements they have accomplished in the past few years.

RYM Young Adult Group at Bishop Eton...
When I first heard about the RYM Young Adult Group at Bishop Eton I was a little apprehensive. Unfortunately friends of mine had been to Young Catholic Adult groups and had been disappointed. They usually fell into one of two categories: too spiritless and nothing ‘Catholic’ about them, or rigid and unaccommodating to anyone who doesn’t share the same views as the leader of the group!
I didn’t know what to expect, whether everyone would have the same outlook and approach to religion that I had, and whether the style of worship and activities would be what I’d have chosen. I decided to leave my prejudices at the door and a year and a half later, I’m so glad I did. The group was not what I expected, and not how I would have done things – it was so much better! When I opened my mind to the possibility that this might just be a group of normal people doing something a bit different to what young people might normally do, I found a new spiritual home among a new group of fellow Catholics whom I am now proud to call my friends.
