Vice-Province od Majella, India
The redemptorist’s mission in the west coast of India comprises of the three states, namely: Maharashtra, Goa and Mangalore (in Karnataka). Each has its own splendid culture, rich traditions and different languages.
The congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer started by saint Alphonsus Liguori in 1732, popularly known as the redemptorists, is working on over than 80 countries around the world. The redemptorist’s Vice-Province of Majella is spread along the west coast of India. We work in many languages: English, hindi, marathi, konkani and kannada. Since we work both in an urban and rural setup our apostolate diverse from place to place.
As sons of saint Alphonsus we are called to proclaim the Good News to the most abandoned poor and we do so through preaching the parish missions and retreats. We also reach out to young people in the college or in the schools through personality development programs, orientation programs and counselling. We are also involved in a social ministry in reaching out to the migrants as well as specially abled children. One of our very important missions in the Vice-Province of Majella is that we care for the creation through our ecological projects of watershed management and promoting organic farming.
Psalm 130:7 says: “In Him there is plentiful redemption”. We work and pray that everyone we reach out to experiences this plentiful redemption. Have a glimpse of what we do.
