Mission Statement

The Spirit of Redeemer:  To Answer God’s Call


We, the Catholic Church of the Redeemer, nurture the spiritual growth of all our members

through vibrant celebrations of the sacraments, daily prayer,

lifelong study of our faith, hospitality, and compassionate service to each other

and to the world beyond our doors.



WEEK FOUR - "Fixing the System"

The first reading this week from Isaiah recalls how God guides the pagan Cyrus the Great (founder of the Persian Empire) and his "system" to do his will. How can we put our wider systems to work for the common good and the Kingdom of God?

No matter how much effort and love we put into our individual work, if the system we are working within is broken and dysfunctional, we cannot do our best work. Our responsibility as Christians extends to transforming and improving systems (a.k.a. "social justice"), not just our own individual work. 

See the insert in this week's bulletin, and visit for more about this week’s theme:
  • 3 Short videos - “Running a Business with Christian Values” tells the impressive story of Walker Mowers; “What Is Legal vs. What is Right”; “Catholic Women on Work and Faith.” 
  • More on fixing the system - Additional quotes and questions to help you go a bit deeper.  
QUESTION OF THE WEEK for Oct. 19thHow am I called to improve the system in my place of work--making it more just, more loving, or just more effective?

All Saints Day

You are invited to bring pictures of your deceased loved ones to be displayed on tables outside the Worship Space before liturgy on All Saints Day, Saturday, November 1st (liturgy will be celebrated at 9:30 am). 


Our hope is that this will be a special way to honor and remember your loved ones who are now one with God and the Communion of Saints.

Kroger Card Change


Kroger Card in Grocery Basket     Kroger Has changed their fundraising program. They will no longer be selling gift cards to nonprofits at a discount.  The new program requires you to sign up on the Kroger website and register your Kroger Plus Card first, then register under the Community Rewards link.

     You will need to list Church of the Redeemer as your organization to receive credit for your purchases. Our Redeemer ID number is 82069. If you do not have an email address, you will need to call 800-576-4377 option 3. We will be receiving a percentage of sales recorded from our parishioners quarterly.

     This is the only fundraiser for Youth Ministry that we do at Redeemer. We thank you for all of your financial support but most importantly, your prayers.
