Fr Tim CSsR Golden Jubilee of Priesthood...

reds 50 cssr

"I think special occasions always evoke a mixture of emotions.

However, as I approach my Golden Jubilee of Ordination, the overwhelming feeling is one of gratitude and I look forward to celebrating that in the best possible way with the great prayer of thanksgiving that is the Eucharist. Our special Feast of the Most Holy Redeemer falls this weekend and provides me with a wonderful opportunity once again to ask the Lord to heal the hurt I have caused others and myself. The future for all of us is in God’s hands, so I invite you to join me in praying that together we may continue to love and support one another in every possible way, recognising that because Christ has redeemed the world, we are already temples of God’s Spirit, children of the Father, adopted brothers and sisters of the Lord."


Apologies for Poetic Muse

Who's still inclined to Covid Snooze!

Nonetheless, we wish for you

A Day of Joy, "A Confreres' Do",

Memories, laughter, celebratory drink

(Observed within The Rule - we think!).

But, most of all, recall of Special Day,

When first shone forth incipient ray,

Which changed your life, and ours as well,

With dreams, triumphs and tales to tell.

Renaissance Man - so many parts -

We hold you close within our hearts,

Dear Father Tim!

Feast of Saint James Mass on line...

I recommend watching a beautiful Mass of the Feast which has been said by the Redemptorist priest and bible scholar, Fr Denis McBride CSsSR. Redemptorist Publications

Prayers are offered for pilgrims everywhere and the pilgrim associations which serve them. Fr Denis’s sermon is outstanding and the mass concludes with the Botafumeiro.

Best wishes from Santiago on this Feast Day which is like no other! Johnnie Walker

Fr Tony Johnson CSsR RIP...

Due to the circumstances around the Coronavirus there were very few of us at Fr Tony's funeral, nonetheless we conducted ourselves with great dignity and gave Fr Tony a fitting send off.

Ace of Clubs is 25

Ace of Clubs turned 25 on the 14th July 2020.  Our thanks to  Fr James McManus C.Ss.R (the then Provincial) who came with the idea and Fr Brian Russell C.Ss.R who brought the idea to life.  Today the Ace still has great staff, headed by Br Mike Taylor C.Ss.R. Ace of Clubs was one of the few place in London who continued to minister to the homeless community during the  Coronavirus lockdown. 

The video below has been made to mark  the 25th Birthday

Today 21st July 2020 is the Golden Jubilee of Priesthood of Fr Tim Buckley.  In his recent letter Fr Provinical said:

We join with Fr Tim in thanking God for this gift of 50 years in the Lord’s service. I believe it would be impossible to fully appreciate the service that Fr Tim gas given and the countless number of people that his ministry has touched and whose lives have been significantly transformed. 


Ad multos annos!
