CSsR around the world, a new project

What if a couple of Lay Missionaries of the Most Holy Redeemer decided to visit Redemptorist communities around the world? What stories, initiatives and challenges would they find? These questions brought us here to this new project. After sharing ideas with other Redemptorist missionaries, we have decided to leave Porto, our hometown in Portugal, and dedicate at least one year of our lives to it. We want to be good listeners at the heart of the family and we want to learn our History in site; a History which is made of many vocational...
