Last year whilst on our diocesan pilgrimage ot Lourdes I had the good fortune to meet some members of a religious community called the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer. The Latin abbrevaiton for this is FSSR.
The communnity is based on the island of Papa Stronsay in the Orkneys. More about their life and work can be found by clicking here http://papastronsay.blogspot.com/index.html.
The five students of the Order are currently studying for the Sacred Priesthood in the Fraternity of St Peter Seminary in Denton, Nebraska, USA. On their way back to Papa Stronsay for the summer vaction they broke their journey with us at St. Marie's. I was delighted to be able to welcome them to out parish.
Please keep them all in your prayers as they continue their studies for the priesthood.
