Welcome to the Catholic Church of the Redeemer in Mechanicsville, VA

We strive to 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."

Within the pages of this site, you will find information about our church, our ministries, and our community. You will also find ways in which you can become involved by sharing your gifts and talents.  WORD describes the many ways we seek to "pass on the the faith" through faith formation and educational programs.  WORSHIP includes our worship, prayer and music programs.  Through SERVICE we reach out to fellow parishioners and the wider community.  COMMUNITY offers opportunities for our parish community, young adults, and youth to gather as people of faith.  We offer many opportunities for GIVING of your time, talent and treasure through our stewardship process and online giving. 

We Need You!

It's been four years since our last directory was completed.  (And five years since the photos were taken - we adults haven't changed, but our children certainly have!)  A new directory will celebrate our church family and help us connect names with faces.  All sessions will take place at church. Every family photographed will receive a free 8x10 portrait and a directory, and photo packages will be available for purchase.  Bring in a nonperishable food item for the food pantry and receive $5 off.  First responders and military receive a 20% discount. 

Upcoming dates are:
          Wednesday - Saturday, June 20-23
          Tuesday-Saturday, July 10-14
          Tuesday - Saturday, July 24-28
Additional dates will be scheduled in the fall.
