Each Traditional order has its claim to fame; the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer is the only one based in the United Kingdom. They were not founded to take on parishes, but to support parish priests by doing Parish missions and retreats. They are able to do this by spending half of each year as a contemplative community. A remarkable combination of roles, the inspiration of the great St Alphonsus Ligouri (who was also the greatest moral theologian of modern times).
There will be a chance to meet two of the brothers during the LMS' Conference on 9th June; they will be manning a stall, and will be able to answer your questions about their life and apostolate. The conference is not academic in character, but is directed to all Traditionally minded Catholics and anyone who wants to get a taste of what we have to say. The speakers are the blogger Fr John Zuhlsdorf, the historian Dr John Rao, Fr Tim Finigan, Stuart McCullough of the Good Counsel Network, and John Hunwicke of the Ordinariate of Our Lady.
