rural mission

The first Redemptorist missionaries in the country Irish, Australians and New Zealanders were pioneers.  Despite coming from a very different culture and environment, they showed great dedication and sacrifice in learning the language, understanding the culture and living with the people.  There is also the continuous effort of missionaries at inculturation; in trying to make the mission respond and adapt to evolving signs of the times; the gradual incorporation of the lay as partners in the mission. All of this for the sake of preaching the good news of Jesus’ abundant redemption especially to the poor and most abandoned people of the many remote barrios of Luzon.  


This pass on to us a big responsibility that like the pioneers, we have to continue to creatively and boldly carry on this tradition; preaching the Good News of plentiful redemption in Christ anew, mindful of the new needs of the people today.
