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

The Annunciation of the Lord

When the Angel Gabriel appears, Mary is at first afraid. However after hearing the good news that she is to become the mother of the Son of God, she places her trust in the Lord as his servant. 

Like many, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by the huge tasks which lie ahead of me. At times like that, I find it calming to remember the verse above and Romans 8:31 – “If God is for us, who can be against us?”

In the papal document, Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis helpfully proposes that “Every morning, on rising, we reaffirm before God our decision to be faithful, come what may in the course of the day. And all of us, before going to sleep, hope to wake up and continue this adventure, trusting in the Lord’s help” (#319).

Like Mary, may we come to trust in the Lord’s help, even when times are difficult.

Praise be to you Lord, through which nothing is impossible. Amen.
