Celebrating Our Mother of Perpetual Help around the world

Redemptorists and thousands around the world celebrated the feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help June 27.

In 1866, Pope Pius IX gave the miraculous icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help to the Redemptorists and charged them with making her known throughout the world. Since then, her image has traveled far and wide, wherever the Redemptorists served. Hers is one of the most recognizable faces in the world.

We hope you enjoy this sampling of photos from several celebrations surrounding the feast day. Redemptorists preached a novena in Eggleston, Dominica in the West Indies. Redemptorist priests from Haiti traveled to Boston and Brooklyn to preach ahead of the feast of the patroness of their country. And in Ireland, the Redemptorists once again attracted thousands of people to a nine-day solemn novena in Limerick.
