Remembering our loved ones

Prayers and rememberence for loved ones we have lost.

You may know someone who is mourning, or you yourself may be grieving. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. At Majellan we want to offer some support to all that may be grieving so I invite you to list the name of anyone you know of who has died so we can remember and acknowledge and pray for them and their families.

We invite you to register the name(s) of anyone who has passed away recently. We will list the names on a special page on our website and send the details to our Redemptorist communities to be included in their Masses and prayer services.

Let’s pause and remember those we have lost, young and old. May perpetual light shine upon them and may they rest in peace.

From the moment they landed in Australia, the Redemptorists had been asked to open a foundation house in Victoria. However, it wasn’t until 1885 – three years after settling in Singleton, NSW – that Fathers Edmund Vaughan, Thomas O’Farrell and John Stokes made it to the southern capital.
