Br Adam Mukabva and Alfred Zembe took their simple vows at Alphonsus House after a year of the noviciate experience under the care of Fr Joseph Musendami and Br David Nyamuronda. A mass which was attended by representatives of relatives, some parishioners from all Redemptorist parishes and the majority of Redemptorists resident in Zimbabwe was held at 10 AM on 29 of July 2017. Fr Tryivis Moyo preached and gave a sermon on the life in the Novitiate, the significance of the profession ceremony and the future.

Brs Adam Mukabva and Alfred Zembe will now join other students at St Alphonsus House under the wings of Br Benjamin Posvo, the Student master and his assistant Fr Gideon Sidinga. This new development means that there will twenty Redemptorist students in Zimbabwe – thirteen in philosophy (6 first years; 4 second years; 6 third years) and seven in theology (2 first year [Adam and Zembe]; 3 third year; 2 fourth year).

Brs Adam and Alfred CSsR - Makorokoto!

Redemptorist Studendate on Tour!...

 

studendate cssr on tour12

 

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.

Ever thought about a Vocation to be a Brother or a Priest?...

Novices receive the CSsR Habit...

The Noviciate taking place in Canada has two of our novices from London - Br Royston Price and Br Mike Taylor - they recently were clothed in the Redemptorist habit. We offer our congratulations to all the brothers who were clothed with the habit at this recent ceremony, and we promise our prayers for their future formation.

Br Royston wrote the following piece,

"On the afternoon of Friday 20th of May, the eight novices in the Redemptorist Novitiate Community in Toronto were clothed in the habit of St Alphonsus. The novices, from the Denver, Baltimore, Dublin and London provinces, have been formed in the spirit of the congregation for the previous ten months, and being presented with the habit is an important milestone on the road to becoming professed members of the Redemptorists.

Close of the Year of Consecrated Life Rome 2016...

One of our students, Br Chris shares some of his memories of an amazing weekend in Rome, to mark the closing of the Year of Consecrated Life, enjoy...

roma san giacchino

(One of our churches in Rome)

Reflecting on the Redemptorist visit to the Conference for Consecrated Life in Unity.

On Thursday 28th January six Redemptorists from the London Province made their way to Rome to take part in the International Conference entitled “Consecrated Life in Unity”, which would bring to a close the year for Consecrated Life. The formation community made up of myself, Brother Charles Randall C.Ss.R. and Fr. Charles Corrigan C.Ss.R along with our Vocations team Fr. Peter Morris C.Ss.R. and Fr. Richard Reid C.Ss.R. and our Provincial Fr. Ronnie McAinsh C.Ss.R. made the journey to the ‘eternal city’. We stayed in our Redemptorist Monastery of San Giacchino on the Piazza del Quiriti, which is only a short walk from the Vatican and serves the stunning Basilica of San Giacchino. The Basilica incorporates a number of beautiful side chapels each dedicated to the country which donated it: among those nations represented are England, Ireland, Spain and the US. We were greeted by one of our confreres who had a meal waiting for us and we were given oranges and lemons from our own orchard at the rear of the monastery. Redemptorist hospitality really is very special and this was evident in the way the confreres of San Giacchino looked after us. The conference opened with a prayer vigil with adoration at St Peters on Thursday night and it was great to meet Redemptorists there from as far away as Brazil and Nigeria.
