Our CSsR Rule...

Although we were founded in 1732, it was not until this day in 1749, when Pope Benedict XIV approved the Redemptorist Congregation and Rule. Deo Gratias!

Interestingly, until 1749 and our approval by Pope Benedict XIV, we were the Congregation of the Most Holy Saviour - the name was deemed too similar to the formal title of the Canons Regular of the Lateran, and so got changed to

the Most Holy Redeemer.
