The early seed of the foundation of the Redemptorists in Ipoh was sown by Rev. Fr. James Wallace CSsR and Rev. Fr. Tom Creede CSsR when they gave a mission in St.Michael’s Church in 1959. In early 1960, that seed began to grow when a gallant team of Missioners, Priests and Brothers arrived to start the foundation at 31, Tambun Road, Ipoh. In June that year, the Bishop of Penang gave formal recognition to the establishment of the Redemptorist Community in Ipoh.

The little chapel at Tambun Raod began to build up as a Mass centre and also as a centre for the Novena devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Many Novena sessions were held on Saturdays to cater for the increasing number of Catholics from St.Michael’s Parish and Our Lady of Lourdes’ Parish and the non-Catholics that were congregating for these sessions. Furthermore the chapel was small and could not accommodate that many at one session. It became so popular that on the Feast day of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, the celebrations were so grand.
