Our Mission Statement at Most Holy Redeemer
Most Holy Redeemer Parish is a Christian Community in the Roman Catholic tradition. This 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 transgender; the healthy and the sick, particularly persons with HIV.
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. Matt’s Message – September 17th, 2017
Forgiveness. We’ve all asked to be forgiven. We’ve all been asked to forgive another. None of us can go through life without getting hurt, or without hurting another. How we cope with the hurts and injuries of life is of great concern in our faith. The Gospel passage this Sunday is a continuous reading of Matthew from where last Sunday’s left off. Jesus had taught his disciples a process for extending forgiveness to one who sins. Peter now asks Jesus how many times he must forgive someone. Jesus’ numerical response shows that forgiveness is infinite. Forgive is Jesus’ message. How could something be so simple and difficult at the same time?
We are one Body in Christ: the love and faith, the needs and hopes we each bring to our prayer and our outreach touches others in ways we cannot fully imagine. Thank you for your faithful and prayerful response to our Hurricane relief collections to assist those affected by these devastating storms. Your response was quick and generous and your donations are already on their way to provide much needed assistance. Thank you! I also received a beautiful thank you letter from the Mission Office of the Archdiocese in response to the parish response to the Missionary Co-op appeal. The offerings of our parish, some $2,274 have been sent to the St. Patrick Fathers in support of their mission in the developing world. Be assured of the gratitude of the Mission Office and the St. Patrick Fathers for making this help possible to a needy missionary cause. I am humbled by, and forever grateful for the generous ways you reach out and give so freely of the gifts you have been given.
Thank you for all you do!
Blessings, love and prayers,
