A selection of recordings from our Annual solemn Novena to St Gerard Majella

Welcome to the website of the Redemptorists at St Joseph’s, Dundalk

On behalf of the Redemptorists and our co-workers at St Joseph’s, I welcome you to our website. Here we share with you who we are and what we do, our call, our mission and our life.

At the heart of who we are and what we do is Christ the Redeemer, whose love and sacrifice for all people we seek to give witness to. It is our hope that this website will be another means of drawing you closer to the friendship of Christ, to experience the joy of Plentiful Redemption.

Our call to be proclaimers of plentiful redemption finds different expressions. Our church is a centre of welcome and comfort, a place of devotion in particular to our beloved brother St Gerard Majella, as well as Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Special ministries of note include our Parish (since 1976), various aspects of the training (formation) of Redemptorist students, and the availability each day of a Redemptorist for people seeking confession, a blessing, prayers, or a chat. From time to time, Redemptorists and co-workers from the community continue join our national team to preach the Gospel throughout Ireland on parish missions, novenas and retreats.

Through our website, we invite you to explore more fully our life and work. You can send us your prayer requests, light a virtual candle and also support our missionary work. You are warmly welcome!

Fr Michael J Cusack CSsR

Fill us with love

Our soul is an empty vessel whose meaning is to be filled with Love, and to pour that love out for others. The best that our mind can do is to fill the vessel of our soul with abstract ideas.

We crave knowing and understanding ourselves because it is Divine Love's joy to fill us with Love and reveal that love as our reality. Our craving and thirst is a sign that will guide us to its source in Love.

This craving is our guide, the sign that reveals our most profound possibilities. We won't often have clear ideas of what to do or how to proceed. All that we know is that what we have is not enough; it is not "the whole truth." We crave more. Our spirit craves more because it is created to know Love and to be loving.

Help us to know that Love has chosen us. And, in that choosing, Know that Love is committed to us and is not complete until we choose Love.
