Launch of Freddie Freckles and the Sacraments
Thursday 20th November saw the launch of Fr. Tim's new book Freddie Freckles and the Sacraments. He had written the stories during the previous years 'With You Always' Sacramental Preparation. "With you always" is the Sacramental programme in the Archdiocese of Liverpool.

EMBRACE Youth Congress...
I write to you still completely alive and full of joy from the wonderful experience of being part of EMBRACE last Saturday 1st November!
Embrace was a an all-day event for young people from all over the country - particularly the North of England - held in Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral!
Around 1000 young people attended the event and RYM were present - with many of the Liverpool Young Adult Group and even some from the Birmingham Young Adult Group enjoying and participating in what was a simply memorable day! We also had an RYM and Redemptorist Stall - outlining all things that are happening within Redemptorist Youth Ministry and also Redemptorist Vocations Ministry!

Remembrance Sunday 2014...
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Fr Provincial's Letter Nov 2014...
1st November 2014.
Dear confreres and friends,
I write to you from South East Asia at this time of all Saints and All Souls. I have been able to spend some time in Ho Chi Minh City with the students who have volunteered to come to our Province and I will give you some details later in this letter.
As usual, in this month we remember our deceased confreres, relatives, benefactors and friends. May I remind the communities of the four Masses to be celebrated for our deceased Redemptorists, those of our Province and also those who have assisted us and cared for us.
