Immaculate Conception 2014...





Rome, December 8, 2014
Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
Patroness of the Congregation






Dear Confreres, Sisters, Associates and friends,


“Before the world was made, God chose us, chose us in Christ, to be holy and spotless, and to live through love in his presence.” (Eph 1:3-4)


On this solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, these words from the second reading at the Eucharist remind us that this feast is not only about Mary. It is about all of us chosen by God in Christ ‘to live through love in his presence’. Under this title of the Immaculate Conception, Mary reminds all Redemptorist missionaries of God’s copiosa redemptio. We marvel at what God can do with and in our human nature. With Mary, we magnify the Lord and our spirits rejoice.

Ace of Clubs Christmas Film...


The Ace of Clubs is a family-like community providing transformative support for those who are homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised in our area. The Ace of Clubs was started many years ago by our Redemptorist confreres and it continues to this day. Now there is a very good and committed lay management team, while the Redemptorists remain the Trustees of the whole operation.


Here is a documentary about the work of the Ace of Clubs, in South London. To use one of their quotes,


"We’ll let our beautiful members, the homeless and vulnerable people we exist to serve do the talking.

Enjoy X The Ace Team!"

The Provincial's Letter - Nov 2014...



30th November, 2014

Dear Confreres and friends,


Today we begin the first Sunday of Advent and also the year of the Consecrated Life. Both events invite us to reflect on what is at the heart of our Faith and the centre of our Redemptorist way of living. Again and again, the liturgy offers us hope and promise for the future, and this is echoed by Pope Francis in his letter for this special year.


I only managed to download the letter last evening, but having studied it I offer you a synopsis of its content. The letter is divided into three parts. However, in the introduction, Pope Francis reminds us that he is also a member of an Institute of the Consecrated Life. So there is a special authenticity in what he writes.

CSsR Building work in Zimbabwe...


Work is underway at St. Gerard's Borrowdale to repair the roof before the onset of the rainy season. The project which is unbelievably expensive, began a week ago and is expected to be completed within the month. St. Gerard's church was built in 1972 under Fr. Philip Foster C.Ss.R and is the first Redemptorist Church to be constructed in Zimbabwe.
