Below are the prayer intentions to date

Today's Advent prayer intention is for vocations. We pray that God will guide us to listen to His voice, and to go where we are called

12th December

Today's Advent prayer intention is for the dying. May the Lord guide them to Himself, where they will feel no more pain, but only the joy of being in His presence!

Thank you Patrick, Hello Natasha and Anita

When Paul Murphy left his position as RYM coordinator in March 2017 he left a hole which took several months to fill, and RYM hit a hiatus   In Liverpool the group continued to meet with meetings facilitated by Patrick Hart, who organised several talks with guest speakers

In Autumn 2017 our new coordinators were appointed. Natasha Pritchard and Anita Carson. In the short term they will focus their efforts in Liverpool, both are enthusiastic about their new roles.

Goodbye Paul - A look back on Paul's Youth Ministry

 

Back in March 2017, after over four years as the Redemptorist Youth Ministry Coordinato, Paul Murphy left  us for pastures new. During his tenure he set up youth groups and young adult groups in Birmingham, Liverpool and London.

A really special weekend with the most wonderful group of friends at our Redemptorist retreat in Perth - 'From Being Called to Being Sent' rym retreat feb 17iirym retreat feb 17i

A great time of delving deeper into our faith with focus on praying with scripture and reflecting on our call to evangelise and share our faith with others!

CSsR Youth - SERVING LIVERPOOL’S HOMELESS...

A reflection written by Anna...

February 8, 2017

Hello!

So today I wanted to share a recent experience of mine. Slightly different from the usual posts I write, however, after my night helping with the Redemptorist Homeless Mission night in Liverpool I believe that awareness needs to be raised of the huge need for help for the homeless people on our streets.

 

I want to share with you my experience of the night, and also tell you how you could get involved.

 

Please, please do get involved. I am really hoping that by using this platform to raise the issue, it will encourage people to talk more about the problem that is homelessness, and hopefully something can be done to find more long-term solutions.

 

My Experience

In all honesty, I had no idea what to expect with the mission night. There have been two previous nights in Liverpool, but unfortunately I had been unable to attend them. However, as part of Hope University’s CathSoc, I had helped to organise collection boxes around the university so that both staff and students alike could donate items such as spare hats, coats, sleeping bags, deodorant and facewipes etc to be donated to the people we were to encounter.

 

On the night, the group of us from Hope travelled to the Metropolitan Cathedral where we met up with Paul (leader of the Redemptorist Mission nights across the UK) and around 20 other people. After a short prayer to kick off proceedings, we split into smaller groups and made our way through the city centre via different routes. By taking this approach, it ensured that we were able to help as many people as possible, and the homeless were not met twice by different groups. This enabled resources to be distributed much more evenly across the city centre.

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!
