KEW FORMATION HOUSE
KEW FORMATION HOUSE
11 Majellan ct Kew Australia
Welcome to Redemptorist Formation House Kew. Our community is comprised of Redemptorist postulants, professed students, deacons, priests, mission partners and staff who are inspired to live and share St Alphonsus’ charism of bringing God’s Good News to the neglected and the poor.
We are located in a hilly area covered with high trees and green parks. The fresh air and solitude provides us with an ideal place to reflect on the needs of the Church and wider society we are training to serve.
Our house of studies is where Redemptorists continue their formation for Apostolic Life in the 21st Century. In order to serve the wounded world to which they are sent, students take classes in English, theology and prepare for future ministries. They deepen their faith and knowledge through the study of the Scriptures, the Church, morality, missiology and the Redemptorist charism. The Kew formation house is committed to the development of the human person, especially in regards to the call to an apostolic life lived in community. Our commitment to human development is a lifelong process in which there are no short cuts.
Like all Redemptorist houses, the Formation House is also a house of outreach. Our students spare time is spent gaining experience in pastoral ministries at different parishes and Redemptorist missions. Outreach is not confined to the students. The whole community reaches out by way of pastoral care for local people in nursing homes, hospitals and by providing Eucharist, sacraments and pastoral support for those in need.
While Redemptorists are sent out to work in and with the cultures they live in, we also enjoy hosting events to neighbours, friends and mission partners throughout the year. We are open to the world and hope to accompany you on your Christian journey.
We believe ‘With God is plentiful Redemption’ (Psalm 130:7). We hope to meet you one day soon.
