" All others had a Redeemer Who delivered them from sin with which they were already defiled, but that the most Blessed Virgin had a Redeemer Who, because He was her Son, preserved her from ever being defiled by it. "
St. Alphonsus Liguori

Province Mission team – working in collaboration with the laity  

redeemer6“Our present parish missions are about putting new heart into the disciples already present, affirming and encouraging them to be witnesses to a broken world. They are also about outreach to those on the margins, and to those within the faith communities who are unsure of the road ahead. Depending on the type of mission employed within the parish, the emphasis may rest more heavily on building up or outreach. One thing is certain however; the Holy Spirit works in a special way during a mission experience, touching people in a way that I believe no parish programme can.”


The experience of a Redemptorist renewal in a parish is a powerful experience for all concerned. It is a time of celebration and growth, a time to deepen faith and share the Good news. It is a time to reach out in the Spirit and unite parish communities.

To quote one confrere;

'Redemptorist missioners stand on holy ground, we see early morning mystics paging through tatered prayer books, the promise of thier prayers gives us confidence. We see the teenager smiling at old church jokes she has never heard. We see families coming to church, parents having worked eight hour shifts, prepared the meals and fed the dog, and still getting to the mission. We counsel people who witness to a holiness they are unconsious of.'

Each of us is evangelized by the experience of a mission.

Listen to what many people have experienced:

“The Mission was a wonderful experience; the people found it enjoyable and uplifting. I certainly feel the parish has benefited from it.”

Parish Priest, Sunderland

 

“What a blessing the Redemptorists have brought to our Parish Community. The Mission celebrations enkindled our faith and enabled us to reach out to others. Each evening was so special and unique.”

“I only planned to come to the Youth Service, but attended the whole week. I can tell this experience has touched many people here. God has brought us together. Come back and see us soon!”
