This was the sentence given to both Fr Richard CSsR and Fr Peter CSsR and this is how they completed it...

I first starting thinking of Religious Life when I was six years old! Never did the idea leave me and now 40 years later I am convinced that I am one of the happiest people on this planet. I am a Redemptorist Priest and all I can say is, Thanks be to God


relgious life


I first started thinking about #religiouslife when I was in the process of applying to enter the Diocesan seminary. 

I attended a special monastic week in Pluscarden Abbey, which was a great experience! However, through prayerful reflection, I said 'no' to the monastic way of life. 

My journey to religious life as a Redemptorist took a twist and a turn, and the decision to leave the Diocese was not taken lightly and, sadly, upset some people. In spite of this, the Bishop at the time encouraged me to go on, confident that the Lord was leading me. 

Those closest to me have seen me blossom in my #formation and in #community with my confreres. Many have been touched by my witness to Christ the Redeemer in my }missionary endeavours, thanks be to God.  
My sense of calling as part of a wider Redemptorist family was keenly felt when we recently had a presence at the World Meeting of Families in Dublin.
