A Message from Michael Brehl, C.Ss.R.
Superior General

Welcome to the official Website of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (C.Ss.R.). We were founded in Scala near Naples, Italy in 1732 by St. Alphonsus Liguori. The Redemptorists, as we are commonly called, number 5300 members serving people across the world in 78 countries.

The motto of our Congregation "Copiosa Apud Eum Redemptio " means: "With Him there is Plentiful Redemption". Like St. Alphonsus, we follow Jesus the Redeemer in preaching this Good News to the poor.

We hope that you enjoy the many features of our website. The menu will help you to navigate to different areas of interest: current news, general information, history, what we do, and even a virtual pilgrimage and Novena prayers. The website also offers Redemptorists and Associates, as well as you, a way of keeping informed about our mission through direct links to Redemptorist units around the world.

Welcome, and may the Spirit of God accompany you in your daily life and service to others.
