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

Mother of Perpetual Help, we give thanks

Mother of Perpetual Help, with grateful hearts we join you in thanking God for all the wonderful things he has done for us, especially for giving us Jesus, your Son, as our Redeemer.

O God, our Creator, we thank you for the gift of life and all the gifts of nature: our senses and faculties, our talents and abilities.

We thank you for creating us in your image and likeness and for giving us this earth to use and develop, to respect and cherish.

Finally, we thank you, loving Father, for giving us Mary, the Mother of your Son, to be our Mother of Perpetual Help.

We pray that you may inspire us to greater confidence in your loving mercy and to seek the aid of our Mother of Perpetual Help.
