Happy New Year, and welcome to the Winter Edition of Hope! At this juncture between Christmas and Ash Wednesday, we are reminded of both the promise of Christmas and its fulfillment at Easter.

The New Year is a great time to renew your connection to the Redemptorists’ many ministries. This issue offers news of an innovative Friday night program for young adults being held in Kansas City at our own Our Lady of Perpetual Help Redemptorist Church, exciting ministry plans by the new Redemptorist team at St. Gerard Catholic Church in San Antonio, a successful celebration of the Holy Vietnamese Martyrs feast day in Kansas City, and another outstanding award season for our Liguorian magazine. Also, please take a look at our Snapshots page for a roundup of many additional Redemptorist activities.

Thank you for supporting the Redemptorists’ many ministries. I pray that this online edition of Hope Magazine inspires and stimulates your own faith.

Yours in our loving Redeemer,
Very Reverend Stephen T. Rehrauer, C.Ss.R.
Provincial Superior, Redemptorists of the Denver Province
