Hope Magazine


Welcome to the Winter Edition of Hope! This Christmas season was indeed a time of “good news of great joy.”

Our own Archbishop Joseph Tobin, C.Ss.R. was named by Pope Francis to the College of Cardinals; and just weeks ago he was installed as the Archbishop of Newark.

Our missions in Nigeria continue to bear great fruit, from our orphanage to our prison ministries, health clinics and outreach to war widows, Mother of Perpetual Help Missions and much more!

In addition, this issue will update you on the Redemptorist’s Hesychia School of Spiritual Direction workshops at our Renewal Center at Picture Rocks, a unique faith formation program being developed at our St. Alphonsus Parish in Grand Rapids, and snapshots of many other ministries in the Denver Province.

I pray that this online edition of Hope Magazine inspires and stimulates your own faith.

Very Reverend Stephen T. Rehrauer, C.Ss.R.
Provincial Superior, Redemptorists of the Denver Province
