Our Mission Statement at Most Holy Redeemer

Most Holy Redeemer Parish is a Christian Community in the Roman Catholic tradition. The parish draws people from isolation to community, from searching to awakening, from indifference to concern, from selfishness to meaningful service, from fear in the midst of adversity to faith and hope in God.

The community of Most Holy Redeemer shares God’s compassionate love with all people. The parish offers a spiritual home to all: senior citizens and youth; single people and families; those who are straight, gay, lesbian, and transgendered; the healthy and the sick, particularly persons with HIV disease.

As a parish community, we celebrate God’s loving presence in our lives. In worship and sacrament, especially the Eucharist, we are nurtured and challenged to extend God’s kingdom of justice, truth, love and peace by growing in the spirit of Jesus, the Most Holy Redeemer.

Fr. Jack’s Message

When I think about a silent retreat, I always think it is a good thing for someone else. But when Sr. Cathy asked me if I would like to go with our group to Mercy Center, I answered before thinking, and I’m glad I did.

There’s something very holy about being of one mind and one heart in shared silence, intent on knowingly being in a shared acknowledgement of the presence of God. The quiet was much appreciated. Our retreat master brought to mind for us what he called the constant chatter in our physical and mental worlds and the benefit of quieting ourselves. What’s the hurry and what’s the rush became a part of the weekend for me.

There were nearly a dozen of us from MHR who shared this weekend of quiet. We noticed how connecting it is to share silence in the way we did. I am reminded of the intimate expression that is ours when we are at Eucharist together. I notice it when volunteers are standing beside each other waiting to take out trays of food to our guests I hear it when we are praying for one another in the Amens we speak and sing at Church. Then there are those individual agreements so many of you have with one another, and the wishing of good things for one another.

 Have a great week,

Fr. Jack
