PHOTOS: St. John Neumann Vocations Retreat
We started this National Vocations Awareness Week with our annual retreat at the St. John Neumann Shrine in Philadelphia. Eight men joined us for a weekend of prayer and reflection. The retreat ended with a special Mass marking St. John Neumann's feast day.

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.
