Missions

Parish Missions:        

Fr Kieran BradyOur present parish missions are about putting new heart into the disciple already present. Affirming and encouraging them to be witnesses to a broken world. They are also about outreach to those on the margins, and to those within the faith communities who are unsure of the road ahead.

Depending on the type of mission employed within the parish, the emphasis may rest more heavily on building up or outreach. One thing is certain,  however, the Holy Spirit works in a special way during a mission experience, touching people in a way that I believe no parish programme can.”

A Parish Mission is a time for Renewal, Growth,Celebration and Empowerment.

And a time to deepen faith, unite parish communities, share the Good News, reach out in the Spirit.

Thank for your support of our Parish Missions, especially if you have recently attended our Renewals. It obviously costs to keep the great work of parish missions and renewal going in the UK, the added blessing of Lay mission leaders also adds to our expenses.

If you can help in any way, please think of a donation or an ongoing gift to us.

See the 'Donate' box on this page. ‘at the ‘write a note’ section, please indicate you wish your gift to go to 'Redemptorist Parish Mission Team’. If you would like us to keep in touch with you, please also leave your contact details’.

You can also send a cheque to 'The Redemptorists' at The Mission Office, Erdington Abbey, 32 Sutton Road, Birmingham, B23 6QL.

Mission in Holy Cross...

Fr Kieran Brady C.Ss.R., and Fr Tom MacCarte C.Ss.R., are currently in Glasgow, in the parish of Holy Cross, leading a mission. If you would like to follow the mission, do so at the parish's facebook page.

Hopefully we will be able to read a reflection on this mission in due course.

Enjoy the pics...

We are grateful to the parish for these beautiful photos of the church and the mission.

Mission in Sevenoaks...

 

'Discovering God', this banner will hang over the sanctuary for the mission week. Various groups have been working for months to make this week a wonderful success. Judging by the turn out at the opening event, it is sure to be so.

 

The first night 'Discovering Healing - Restoring Hope'touched many people’s hearts, while the early mass is proving popular with many folk, a free breakfast thrown in before boarding the trains to London. Later in the week the school have organised a Eucharistic Procession to celebrate Corpus Christi. Members of the new 'Ordinariate' are also joining in the mission celebrations.

 

Browse a few pictures of our celebrations so far, including Fr Charlie Corrigan, Fr. Kieran Brady & Fr. Richard Harvey PP getting some sun. May this week be a time of prayer and growth in the parish of Sevenoaks, as the parish mission prayer book quotes:

 

Protect us O Lord, from thoughts without action.

Guard us O Lord, from words without feelings.

Defend us O Lord, from ideas without results and

surround us with Your Presence.

 

from a prayer by David Adam

Mission in Leicester...

 

As you may know, the Redemptorists have been giving all kinds of missions and retreats in the UK for about 150 years but we always move with the times and adapt our style.
 
Frs Kieran Brady and Charlie Corrigan CSsR have been adapting one particular style to suit some parishes. They have recently been giving a mission in the joint parishes of St Mary's and St John Bosco's in Leicester, needless to say the week has been going well.
 
All groups in the parish have been touched by the Word of God.
 
The lay people have been formed into small faith sharing teams and have themselves prepared many aspects of the liturgy and Mission.
 
The mission nights were intitled, 'A Healing touch' 'Heart to Heart' 'A Mother's love' while the young people of the parish helped construct a night called 'A Just Word' exploring Justice in our world. 
 
In the pics of the mission we see both Fr. Kieran and Fr. Charlie and their 'little helpers' on the Family themed event in the mission.

Each night was, of course, judged by the people to be a great success and a special moment in the spiritual journey of these faith communities.
 
 
Feel free to contact the Redemptorists about a possible Renewal for your own parish.
 
The next scheduled event for Fr. Charlie & Fr. Kieran will be leading a similar format mission in the parish of St. Thomas of Canterbury, Sevenoaks in Kent towards the end of June.

 

Mission Season...

 

"We have just finished our Mission in Our Lady and St Patricks Walthamstow. It was, of course, a great success. The other parish in Walthamstow had a great mission recently from none other than Fr Jim McManus and Miss Marie Hogg. Glad to see the Redemptorists are making such an impact in a little corner of London.
 
 
Myself and Fr. Tom MacCarte are now giving a shorter Parish Retreat (Triduum) in Our Lady and St George Parish Penilee, a renewal in fact. Myself and Fr Charlie Corrigan gave a full 'process' mission here last year. The people loved it so much they invited the Redemptorists back again to help them with Lent.
 
 
I have been sent some photos of last night's Lenten (Healing) Service. 
 
The next date for the diary (a date that may have changed since I last sent you stuff) - I am off this coming weekend to prepare a parish and lead a Retreat day on Saturday - away Friday to Monday - in South Wigton, Liecester, preparing them for a process mission later in the year."
 
 
 
Yours
 
Fr. Kieran Brady C.Ss.R.
