Fr Provincial's first letter of 2017...


28th December, 2016

Dear Confreres and friends,


All good wishes for a very happy and blessed New Year. Once more, we have much to be grateful for during these past 12 months.


In particular I am grateful to God for the Professions and Ordinations which have taken place both in the Province and in the Region, and for the extraordinary amount of apostolic work undertaken by all of us. A special word of thanks must go to our elderly confreres who continue to be available to support our various ministries.


As we look ahead, many challenges are indeed present. Fr. Gabriel Maguire has been diagnosed with a serious illness and will have six months away from ministry in order to maximise the effect of the radiotherapy and chemotherapy he will receive. I know you will keep him in your prayers.

A fantastic year... a look back over CSsR 2016...

God bless you all over the next year of 2017

"A saint once said that those who love Jesus Christ most ought to kneel at the feet of the Holy Child and, in spirit, perform for him the same service as the beasts in the stable at Bethlehem who warmed him with their breath.

We should warm him with our sighs of love."

CSsR Youth Ministry in Action...

Paul Murphy reports on the Redemptorist Homeless Mission which has been taking place in London, Birmingham and Liverpool...

"Quite an incredible and humbling night at our Redemptorist Homeless Mission in Liverpool. A wonderful group of over 20 us from all over Liverpool and beyond came to help us minister to people who we encountered on the streets who were homeless.

We met and distributed sandwiches, hot drinks, water, homeless packs (hats, scarves, socks, toothbrushes and toothpaste) to over 90-100 people who are homeless in the city centre.

Yet again I'm overwhelmed by the generosity of people's time, love and commitment to the mission - and the thanksgiving and friendliness of our brothers and sisters in need. They were all so thankful and their smiles were wonderful. 

Shocking increase however in the numbers of homeless we are seeing this year! God bless all those we met, all those who came and helped in any way tonight. We are already arranging another Mission for January here given the response of the group!"
