  • Bishop's Q&A List

  • Big Annual Holy Name St. Pat's/St. Joe's Dinner on March 9th! 

    It's that time again!  Time for the annual St. Patrick/St. Joseph dinner March 9, 2019 at 6 PM in Desmond Hall. This is a premier family event at Most Holy Redeemer and one you won't want to miss. Tickets are being sold after each Mass so get yours now before they're gone!

    Also, the next Holy Name Mass is the 8:00AM Mass on February 17th.

  • Our Lady's Special Year - 2019


    As you may have seen from the banner in the church main vestibule, we have already started a year of special devotion to Our Lady, specifically "Our Lady of Guadalupe," Patroness of the Americas.


    Later this year, Bishop Checchio will consecrate the Diocese on December 12, 2019 to Our Lady of Guadalupe. So this year is one of spiritual renewal and preparation for that event.

    There will be a number of activities the LIFT ministry will be conducting during the year (stay tuned here for more info as these happen). The first of these is the passing of the Guadalupe "Prayer Kit," now underway at Masses on Saturday and Sunday. A number of families have signed up to receive the Prayer Kit in their home for a week to pray with other families in the Diocese during the week they have the kit; then to pass it on to another family.

    If you have not already signed up to join your fellow parishioners to receive the Guadalupe  Prayer Kit for one week in your home, you can do so on lists that are in each vestibule.

    We all know the kinds of good things that have to happen in the Church these days and prayer through Mary is a most powerful way to ask Our Lord to mend the broken and bring peace to our lives. Make it a priority to learn more about Our Lady of Guadalupe. She brought astonishing miracles to the Americas when she appeared and we pray for her help today.

  • Becoming A Catholic

    The parish "RCIA" process to become a Catholic is an exciting and fulfilling journey of faith: "From the awareness of Faith's stirrings and curiosity within one's heart...

    • through all those stages of asking and seeking,
    • through beginning involvement with Roman Catholic people,
    • through hearing the Gospel proclaimed and by faithful reflection and prayer on this Word of God,
    • through study and discussion about the Catholic experience,
    • through doubts and hesitations,
    • through discernment of God's call,
    • through the steps of commitment,
    • through the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist)
    • to a life of Faith, Love, and Justice lived in communion with Catholics throughout the world.

    If you one of the growing number of good people who are experiecing the call to become a Catholic, answer the call and make the move to join the other wonderful folks in our RCIA program.
