Redemptorist Region of Colombo
With Him is Plentiful Redemption
Welcome to the official website of the Redemptorist Region of Colombo. The Redemptorists are a religious congregation of priests and brothers within the Catholic Church founded by Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori who live in community for the sake of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially among people on the margins of society and church.
Who are the Redemptorists?
The Redemptorists are a religious congregation of priests and brothers within the Catholic Church who live in community for the sake of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially among people on the margins of society and church. Redemptorists serve the poor and most spiritually abandoned. We work in parishes and shrines, minister to immigrants, preach parish missions and retreats, promote devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, and evangelize through traditional and new media. Following in the footsteps of St. Alphonsus Liguori and 17 other confreres who have been canonized or beatified, approximately 5,300 Redemptorists serve in 82 countries throughout the world. Our brothers and priests bring a message of hope and Good News to everyone they encounter: “In Him there is plentiful redemption” (Psalm 130:7).
Witnesses of the
Holy Redeemer in a Wounded World
The theme chosen by the Redemptorists for 2016 – 2022 “Witnesses of the Redeemer: in Solidarity for Mission to a Wounded World” – seeks to inspire and challenge the Redemptorist Family to a new missionary solidarity and availability for the sake of the Mission, as well as a conversion of minds, hearts and practices for the renewal and revitalisation of Redemptorist Consecrated Life.
As a global missionary congregation, the Redemptorists are engaged in a wide range of ministries around the world.
Working in 80+
