You are all winners!’

Mass with Children: Sunday, January 28 at 9 AM in St. Mary’s Holy Family Church, Kensington or watch on Facebook Live at Fr. Jay’s Facebook Page. “If you are or ever were a child you’ll get a lot out of this Mass.”

Refugee Sponsorship Consideration: We are living in an era where there are an inordinate number of displaced persons and refugees throughout the world.  Clearly the need is great for asylum and refuge.  As we enter the New Year, we invite your parish community to give consideration to sponsoring a family.  By doing so you can make a difference and change their lives.   – Diocesan Refugee Sponsorship Advisory Committee

Looking for an evening mass?  Do the 9am and noon options not fit your work schedule? Holy Redeemer has a 6:30 Mass on Wednesday evenings.  Young adults are invited to gather after mass at Visitation Place but all are welcome to Mass.
