Solidarity with Ukraine
The Irish Redemptorists like so many other citizens and groups are deeply perplexed by the unfolding tragedy being inflicted on the Ukrainian population as the Ukraine courageously defends itself from an inexplicable war unleashed by Russia.
The Redemptorists in the Ukraine are immersed in local communities and have opened their houses and churches as sanctuaries for displaced families crippled with fear and anxiety.
Present in Tschernihiv in the north of Ukraine and Berdyansk, in the east of Ukraine, and Lviv as well in several locations close the Polish border, the Redemptorists, are offering shelter, food, and medical support. At border points with Poland, Redemptorists in the Ukraine and parishioners are offering nourishment both physical and spiritual as families seek refuge in neighbouring countries.
The Redemptorists in Poland have established a humanitarian corridor to help deliver emergency supplies and funds. The Redemptorist Provincial in Poland is playing a leadership role in a coordinated approach to welcoming Ukrainian families as they flee the war, helping them towards shelter, food, and integrated support. In Slovakia, the Redemptorists have made their monastery in Kostlna available to host fleeing families who will cross from Ukraine to Slovakia.
The Redemptorists are appealing for financial support. If you would like to support our Solidarity with Ukraine campaign, please donate online at:

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, vocations ministry and the availability each day of a Redemptorist for people seeking confession, a blessing, prayers, or a chat. Redemptorists and co-workers from the community join our national team to preach the Gospel throughout Ireland on parish missions, novenas and retreats.
St. Joseph’s Monastery is also home to the Provincial Administration of the Redemptorists in Ireland and our publishing house, Redemptorist Communications, is also based here.
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 Noel Kehoe, C.Ss.R., Adm.
Rector and Parish Administrator
