Throughout the Redemptorist world, there are lay people
who share the spirit and missionary zeal of the Congregation- Constitutions of the Redemptorists, No. 085
These women and men accompany the confreres in a variety of ways, all of them contributing to breaking open among the poor and forgotten the Good News of the Most Holy Redeemer.
