TV Devotions by the Redemptorists
Your donations keep the Devotions on TV
Once again we prepare to celebrate the Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help on June 27th. Once again we invite you to complete the enclosed Petition Form. We will place the Petition Form at the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help located at St. Patrick’s Church in downtown Toronto.
Our petition form focuses primarily on the living members of your family you want included in the Masses and prayers of the Novena; however, you are most welcome to include the names of any deceased you also wish to be remembered.
There is no charge to have your loved ones remembered in these 9 days of Masses and prayers. However any donation that is included will be used to help cover the more than $300,000.00 yearly cost of maintaining the Perpetual Help Devotions (now in its 22nd year on Vision TV). Our program was initiated in response to the invitation of Pope Pius IX more than 150 years ago to: “Make Mary known throughout the world”.
Our Novena begins on June 19th and ends on June 27th. If you are in the Toronto area, come and participate in the Triduum (3 days of Masses and prayer that conclude with the celebration of the Feast Day). For information regarding Mass times please contact the parish at 416-598-3269.
Know that Mary’s Son, Jesus, abandons no one. Know that your loved ones have been created in the image and likeness of God. Know that the goodness you see evident in the lives of your sons and daughters, grand-sons and grand-daughters, are signs of God’s presence within them. Know that you are included in our daily Masses and prayers.
In the Holy Redeemer,
Fr. Babu Mathew, C.Ss.R.
Director, Perpetual Help TV Devotions
