The Redemptoris Mater Archdiocesan Missionary House of Formation is a new institution of the Archdiocese of Armagh. It was founded in 2012 by Cardinal Seán Brady to form priests for the New Evangelisation who are both diocesan and missionary. Our vocations come from the Neocatechumenal Way and will be ordained as priests of the Archdiocese of Armagh.
The Neocatechumenal Way has been present at the parish level in Ireland for the last 32 years and has been in the Archdiocese of Armagh for 10 years.
When the seminarians will be ordained, they will be incardinated into the Archdiocese of Armagh and serve in the parishes of the Archdiocese, they will also be available, at the discretion of the Archbishop of Armagh, to serve as missionaries, both in other parts of Ireland and internationally, thus allowing the Archdiocese to have a new missionary thrust answering the Holy Father’s call for the New Evangelisation.
