Since 1732, the Redemptorists — a congregation of missionary priests and brothers — have followed in Jesus’ footsteps, preaching the Word and serving the poor and most abandoned.

St. Gerard Majella, pray for us!

Happy Feast Day! Today the Redemptorists celebrate the feast of one of their great confreres — St. Gerard Majella, a Redemptorist brother who, though he died at the young age of 29, already had a reputation for saintliness. Made a saint in 1904, he is the patron of mothers, especially during pregnancy, as well as the patron of couples hoping to conceive a child.

St. Gerard, pray for us!
