CSsR Youth and the London Homeless Mission...

Paul Murphy shares with us some thought -

"Once again I have a mixture of emotions following our Redemptorist Homeless Mission in central London this evening!

On the most bitterly cold night in London - we have had the most heartwarming conversations with some incredible people who are homeless around Piccadilly, Green Park, Piccadilly Circus and Chinatown. 

We met and talked to around 30 people from so many places who are homeless. So many people who are just like you and me - and who are in such lonely heartbreaking situations - without food, shelter or company!

Provincial's Letter January 2017...


26th January, 2017

Dear confreres and friends,


As we come to the conclusion of the first month of yet another year, I wish to share with you the fruits of the Visitation of the Province by the OPC. 


First of all I express the gratitude of Frs. Richard, Gerry and myself for the warm welcome we received in each community. We were very touched by the kindness, openness and generosity of all the confreres. Indeed I believe it was a moment of grace for us.


We were very struck not only by the hospitality, but by the immense amount of apostolic work being done, the genuine good will among the confreres, and above all the spirit of prayer in each house. We were able to celebrate the Eucharist and participate in the prayer life of the three larger communities, and also had moments of reflection and prayer with the others.

Redemptorist Studendate on Tour!...

Over the seminary half term break the Redemptorist formation community, based in Clapham, took the opportunity to visit some of our historic Churches. We set off early to drive to Worcestershire to Blackmore Park and the Church of Our Lady and St Alphonsus. The Redemptorists were there for six years and in that short time had over 400 conversions! It must have been a truly blessed mission and entering the church it was immediately obvious that this was a Redemptorist house. The shrine of Our Lady, the Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Succour and the chapel of St Alphonsus with its stained glass depicting his life made us feel at home. Fr Charles Corrigan C.Ss.R. said mass and in his homily reflected upon those Redemptorists whose ministry had changed the lives of so many people.

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

We should warm him with our sighs of love."
