CSsR Clothing with the Habit…

Wednesday evening, on the Feast of the Visitation, was a very special occasion for our community here  in Clapham as one of our brothers (Br Chris Reynolds) was clothed in the Redemptorist Habit. He also received the ministries of Lector and Acolyte, while another brother (Br Max Mura CSsR) also received the ministry of Acolyte. See the photos below…

Br Chris sends the following message – as he already did on Facebook!

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks to everyone who has sent me their good wishes today as I received the Redemptorist habit. It’s been a great day and all the more special to spend with my community here in Clapham. Thanks to everyone who supports me!
