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

Entering into the heart of God

Acting mercifully to others is entering into the heart of God and doing what God is doing in the world. It is living in the Sacred Heart. There, each one of us is wrapped in the boundless mercy of God, and is empowered to bring that mercy to others.

United with Christ in this way, we begin to share in Jesus’ reaction to hatred, violence, and dishonesty. Sharing in this mercy, we are not destroyed by the evils we encounter in ourselves and our world. Rather than becoming harsh and bitter, we each grow more fully as agents of mercy and forgiveness in the world.

Let St Paul sum it up, “be kind to one another, tender-hearted and forgiving one another, as God in Christ has forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32).
