Two new Redemptorist missionaries


(Lublin, Poland) Two Redemptorist fathers, Przemysław Ilski CSsR and Victor Bohan CSsR completed the two-year pastoral and missionary formation (called a Pastoral Tirocinium) with objective to conduct popular mission and new form of evangelization.

The closing ceremony of the Tirocinium, accompanied by a prayer for new missionaries and the handing over the crosses was held on June 22, 2020 in Lublin. The Eucharistic celebration was presided over by the Superior of the local community and the prefect Tirocinium in Lublin, Fr. Andrzej Makowski CSsR.


As he was referring to figure of Our Lady of Mountain in his homily, Fr. Makowski pointed out three guiding lines that one can recognize in the Redemptorist missionary preaching: The Word of God present in the Bible, Jesus Christ the Redeemer – the Incarnate Eternal Word, and the presence and role model of the Mother of God.

We wish our confreres a creative and abundant proclaiming of Jesus Christ.
