200th anniversary of the Death of Saint Clement Maria Hofbauer

Saint Clement HofbauerIf you needed someone to take on new ventures in changing times and difficult circumstances, then Clement Hofbauer would be the person to do it. He was independent, resourceful and very much a man of God. Ironically, Clement was a late bloomer. He had tried many good things in his youth and early adulthood but had not quite found his place in the world.

On March 15th, the Feast of Clement Hofbauer, Redemptorists  from around the world will begin a year long celebration of the 200th anniversary of the death of Saint Clement Maria Hofbauer.

As we begin this year of celebration, we have prepared a few resources for you to better understand the life and work of Saint Clement Maria Hofbauer.

We ask Clement, this mighty man of faith, to intercede for us in our mission and especially to keep us engaged in proclaiming the Gospel creatively in these challenging times.
