Mass for the 150th Anniv. of the Entrustment of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Icon to the Redemptorists

September 15, 2016
Two thousand years ago Jesus said, “He sent me to preach the Good News to the poor.” Since 1732 the Redemptorists have followed in Jesus' footsteps, preaching the Word and serving the poor and most abandoned. This congregation of missionary priests and brothers was founded by St. Alphonsus Liguori.
This year Redemptorists throughout the world celebrate 150 years since the Congregation was entrusted with the ancient and miraculous icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. In 1866 Pope Pius IX gave the Redemptorists responsibility for the icon’s care, asking them to “make her know throughout the world.”
The Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province are marking this jubilee with the Mass and Live Broadcast of the 150th Anniversary of the Entrustment of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Icon to the Redemptorists at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C..
The Mass will be celebrated by Very Reverend Michael Brehl, C.Ss.R., Superior General of the Redemptorists.
Watch or stream the Mass LIVE on Salt + Light Television on:
Saturday, September 17th at 2:00pm ET / 11:00am PT
