Solemn Novena to St Gerard Majella
Information & Recordings

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

A Prayer for the Drought-Stricken Places

We pray for an end to the drought and the arrival of rain to soothe and replenish the dry and parched land.

We pray for wet weather to drench the earth, to bring new life to seeds, and to insure a good  harvest.

We are saddened by the the cracking of the ground, the spread of destructive wildfires, and the resulting deaths of crops and wild animals.

We pray for patience to endure this drought siege as we wait for rain to refresh and renew our lives and livelihoods.

We are so grateful for the life-saving capacities of rain, and pray that we never take water for granted.
