You can support our future Redemptorists
Deacon Kevin Bellot
began his ministry at Seelos House in St. Lucia this month, and is scheduled to become Father Kevin this summer!
We’re inviting friends of the Redemptorists to share in the celebration by giving a gift today in his honor
. Your gift will help create a special chalice to be presented to Kevin on his ordination day.
You’ll also be supporting the education of 13 more men currently in formation with the Redemptorists in the Baltimore Province.
With prayer, study, and service in parishes and communities, they are learning what it means to be Redemptorists, and are eager to share the Good News with all people, especially the poor and most abandoned.
As Deacon Kevin shared with us recently, "From the outside looking in, it seemed that this was really easy to accomplish, but the reality is, it's a lot of hard work. But the adventure is very good, and the mystery behind that adventure is really what pushes me on. It's absolutely worth doing!"
Thank you for your prayers for Deacon Kevin as he approaches this big moment in his life as a Redemptorist, and thank you for your support of our young men in formation!
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.
