There is the devotion to Mother of Perpetual Help wherever the Redemptorist missionaries go,because we always want to place all of our religious life and apostolic activities in our Mother’s loving hands.
On the other hand, we believe that our mission’s success first and foremost thanks to the graces of Mary bestowing on missionaries and sinners.
There will always be a grand procession of the Icon prior to the commencement of Popular Mission.
Often the Confraternity of Our Mother of Perpetual Help and Saint Alphonsus is also established during the mission. The members of the confraternity will become our important benefactors and partners in our life and mission.
In every shrine, the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help is celebrated every Saturday. The people from near and far as well as other dioceses come to the shrines to honor our Mother of Perpetual Help and to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
That’s why the Icon has been placed on the altar of every Catholic family.
Mother of Perpetual Help indeed always walks with her children in our greatest struggles of life. For the poor Vietnamese Catholics,the Icon of Mother of Perpetual Help is always a loving treasure.
