Redemptorist Community News

Congratulations to Fr. Richard who has been elected Vicar Provincial Superior and will be on the OPC and Fr. Tim who has been elected to the EPC.

Fr Barrie returns to the community tomorrow, Monday 15, which is a wonderful Christmas present for us. He has completed his course of treatment. Now we hope that he will be able to have the original operation reversed sometime in the New Year. Again he thanks everyone for all the prayers and good wishes.

Today the "Year of Consecrated Life" begins and will run until 2 Feb 2016. Pope Francis is asking us all to celebrate and pray for consecrated life; become more aware of and consider joining consecrated life. We have plenty of examples around, the Redemptorists, the SND sisters and the Focolare movement. Please keep consecrated people in your prayers especially during this year.

From Fr. Richard : I shall be in Spain making a 100 mile pilgrimage walk to Santiago de Compostela to give thanks to God for our Redemptorist Vocations, and to pray for vocations for the future. Please join us in prayer for this intention, 30 August—7 September. If you check out the website, www.redemptorists.co.uk , you can follow us each day.

Fr. Richard speaks about why he and a group of others will be walking the last 100 miles of the Camino

 

 

Prayer for Redemptorist Vocations

Father,


we thank you for the blessings you have given us

in Christ our Redeemer.

Let your Spirit overshadow your people,

making your gentle invitation heard in many hearts.

Lord of the Harvest,

bless the Redemptorist family

throughout the world with many vocations,

so that those in greatest need

will experience the Good News of Redemption.

May your love grow among us

and your kingdom come,

through Christ our Lord.

AMEN

 

 

 

From Fr. Richard C.Ss.R

Stained Glass, taken from the house in Sunderland, has been fitted in the windows of the Monastery Oratory. They depict St Alphonsus, St Gerard and St Clement. I have taken pictures which are on the Redemptorist website.

Fr Richard C.Ss.R. wants to thank the parishioners most sincerely for their generosity in response to the appeal made for the Formation of our Redemptorist Students. £983.34 was received (not including Gift Aid). God bless you and your loved ones.

Brother Peter Morris has recorded a message from Zimbabwe for us. It is easily accessible on the front page of our website www.bishopeton.org.uk

A Warm Welcome to Fr Tony Hunt, C.Ss.R. who joined the community last week. Tony was born in Knolle Park and baptised at St Mary's. Brought up on the Wirral he was ordained at Bishop Eton in 1967. He has spent all his working life as a Redemptorist in the Rustenburg missionary territory of South Africa. In spite of a number of health problems he remains his vibrant cheerful self.

Bishop Ralph's Installation in Hallam. Bishop Ralph Heskett was duly installed as the new Bishop of Hallam last Thursday. It was a very happy event with a liturgy to fit the occasion. Since he has also been asked to be Apostolic Administrator of Gibraltar until a new bishop is appointed there, he certainly has his work cut out. Please keep him in your prayers.

Jubilee Celebration today at the 11.30am Mass. Today is in fact the 50th Anniversary of the Ordinations of Frs Anthony Johnson and Jim Casey. We congratulate them and assure them of our prayers and good wishes. They will concelebrate today's Mass at 11.30 a.m. "Ad multos annos" is the traditional good wish of the Redemptorists "for many more years" to come.
