• Welcome

      Welcome to Most Holy Redeemer Parish.

      A parish should be a home for the spirit.

      It should be a place where we are Welcomed,
      nourished with the Word and Eucharist
      and enabled to Worship the Lord in truth and with joy. 

      The parish should direct our energy 
      to the Welfare of the poor, the sick, 
      the neighborhood, the world.

      The parish should make us bold to Witness 
      to our faith in God, in Jesus Christ, and in one another.

      These “five W’s” describe what a parish should be, and what our Catholic Christian presence should be in the world around us.

      In 1844 the German immigrants and the Redemptorists began Most Holy Redeemer parish here on East 3rd Street. They built a church where so many, then and now, have entered to find a welcoming peace, a home for their spirit. 

      Today our commitment is to be a home for the spirit where all can find welcome and plentiful Redemption in Jesus Christ, the Most Holy Redeemer. 
      A lot has changed since 1844, but we at M.H.R. still try to live by the five W’s.
