Parish Missions - Fall 2018

posted on Aug 3, 02:06 pm by Kathy McMerty

Fr. Eugene (Red) O’Reilly, C.Ss.R.

Affectionately know as “Red”, Father O’Reilly was born in Monoghan, Ireland in 1944. He came to Canada with his family and later joined the Redemptorists. Upon graduating with a B.A. from the University of Windsor, he pursued his theological studies in France and Montreal and was ordained in 1972. Since 1983 he has preached Missions and retreats to parishes, teachers, school boards, clergy and Religious throughout Canada and the United States. He has also served in St. John’s, Newfoundland as Pastor of a large parish. He has been Vocation Director for the Redemptorists in the Eastern Province. Father Red completed a sabbatical year, part of which was spent at the School of Applied Theology, Berkley, California. He has a particular interest in music, and has composed a number of religious songs. Some of his music is in the Catholic Book of Worship and the Grade four and five Religion Programme in Canada. He has teamed up with other Redemptorists, and together they have produced four recordings.

Fr. Eugene’s music was developed mainly in support of his parish mission preaching work. Some of his pieces, such as The Prodigal Son, Children of the Light and Woman of Mystery are well-known and well-loved across the country and around the world. He is known for his teaching on joy and compassion, his touching stories and his humour.
