Have you been to a Redemptorist mission?
What is a Redemptorist mission? It's like a parish retreat. A time to step away from the busyness of life and focus on what's really important — our relationship with God, with ourselves, and with each other. The nights of a parish mission aren't your ordinary nights in church, either! Prepare to laugh, perhaps shed a tear or two, and hear the Word of God presented in a whole new way!
Know someone who's been away from the Church or the sacraments for awhile, a parish mission is a great time to invite them back!
Here are a few upcoming missions:
January 15 Orlando, FL (Fr. Daniel Francis)
January 20 Port Orange, FL (Frs. Patrick Woods & John McGowan)
February 5 Beaufort, SC (Fr. Daniel Francis)
February 11 Candler, NC (Frs. Alex Ortiz & Tom Deely)
Who are the Redemptorists?
Two thousand years ago Jesus said, “He sent me to preach the Good News to the poor.” Since 1732 the Redemptorists have followed in His footsteps, preaching the Word and serving the poor and most abandoned. Our congregation of missionary priests and brothers was founded by St. Alphonsus Liguori. Like the first Apostles, our mission—and our joy—is bringing the message of salvation to all people. As Redemptorists, we have a special devotion to crib, cross, Mary, and the Eucharist. To learn more, explore our website and connect with us on Google+, Facebook, and Twitter.
