St. Joseph Mass League
In the wake of war and disease, the Redemptorists create a memorial fund for the ages.
The St. Joseph Mass League was created in 1919 in the wake of war, death and disease. The twin catastrophes of World War I and the influenza epidemic of 1918 left millions of people grieving the loss of loved ones.
Catholic churches throughout the country saw a huge spike in requests for prayers and Masses. At our Redemptorist parishes, the lists of names grew so long that many people feared their requests would not be heard for weeks or even months later.
To prevent this delay, Father Christopher D. McEnniry, C.Ss.R., the provincial superior at the time for the St. Louis Province, created the St. Joseph Mass League, a province-wide initiative that included Redemptorists at every parish in the saying of Masses and prayers for those who submitted names of loved ones, either living or deceased, to the St. Joseph Mass League.
Our Mother of Perpetual Help Mass Guild
The Redemptorists - Denver Province Province has introduced a Vietnamese Mass league specifically for our beloved Vietnamese parishoners and confreres.
With the help of many of our province’s Vietnamese confreres, we have created this program to be centered on the special love the Vietnamese have for Our Mother of Perpetual Help. The mass stipends and enrollment cards are of a greater substance that more appropriately signify the great respect being shown to the deceased person
