Boston's Mission Church featured on CatholicTV
Catholics in the Boston area have tuned in to their local Catholic cable channel since the early 1980s to view the weekly Perpetual Help Novena from the Redemptorists' Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Since 2009, the novena has also been featured here on redemptorists.net.
During the month of March, Boston's CatholicTV features Mission Church, as the basilica is commonly known, in its monthly program guide. Fr. Philip Dabney, who leads the novena services, was recently interviewed on the channel's "This is the Day" program (interview begins at 19:30).
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.
