Two CSsR Brothers and a Bishop...

We are grateful to our

Redemptorist brother,

who is the Bishop of Hallam,

Bishop Ralph Heskett CSsR,

who over the past month has ordained two of our brothers to the Diaconate.

Br Royston Price CSsR was ordained in St Mary's Clapham

on 1st August on the Solemnity of St Alphonsus

and

Br Mike Taylor CSsR was ordained on Tues 25th August

on the Feast Day of Blessed Methodius Dominic Trcka CSsR

in Bishop Eton, Liverpool.

 

To have these celebratioins in these days of Coronavirus

has not been as easy as it might have been.

However, we thank God for giving our brothers their vocation and as they said,

"these celebrations are not about a party,

rather this is about God and ministry."

 

The picture below shows two men

united by

a Redemptorist Vocation

and also

the Episcopate.

Also please pray for Zimbabwe.
The Bishops of Zimbabwe recently wrote a letter critical of the Government

 

 

“Fear runs down the spine of many of our people today. 

The crackdown on dissent is unprecedented. Is this the Zimbabwe we want? 

To have a different opinion does not mean to be an enemy. 

It is precisely from the contrast of opinions that the light comes. 

Our Government automatically labels anyone thinking differently

as an enemy of the country: that is an abuse,” 

Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops Conference said.

 

The country and its wonderful people need our prayers!
