Foundation of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer: On Thursday, November 9, 2017, we celebrate the 285th anniversary of our Congregation. Inspired by God and anointed with the Holy Spirit, St. Alphonsus Liguori and his companions gathered in Scala and dedicated their lives to follow Jesus the Redeemer as he preaches Good News to the poor. Today, we give thanks to God for our vocation to continue this mission as prophetic witnesses to the Redeemer. He continues to call men and women today to share this charism in the Redemptorist family. May we promote this vocation with courage, joy and hope. May Our Mother of Perpetual Help and St. Alphonsus always accompany us!
