Occasion and purpose

The Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help is without doubt the most universally loved Icon in the Church. It appeals to all cultures, languages and even to those of a different religious tradition. This 150th anniversary is a time for us to rekindle our love for and devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, even as she accompanies us in the mission of evangelization. It must also be an invigoration of the mandate given to the Redemptorists to ‘Make Her Known’. We hope that the theme already chosen and that the Logo to be designed will communicate this Anniversary for what it is: a time of grace.
