ARCHDIOCESAN MISSION
A TIME OF GRACE

A mission is an opportunity for a parish or diocese to experience, in a heightened and intense way, spiritual services, homilies, and Sacraments focusing on the major themes of our faith. Fr. David Louch, CSsR and Fr. Tony Bidgood, CSsR are Redemptorist priests, and Anne Walsh is a Redemptorist Lay Missionary. Redemptorists love to talk about redemption, about a God who loves us deeply and loves to forgive, and about what Christ has done for us. Redemptorists preach a Gospel of unconditional love in order to move hearts and change lives. Preaching continual conversion means that the mission is not merely a nice “shot in the arm,” but rather the beginning of a renewed relationship with the Holy Redeemer.
