Welcome to the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, Bergvliet, Cape Town.
Holy Redeemer Church, Bergvliet, is home to a thriving worshipping community of all ages. At the heart of the parish community is a community of Redemptorist Missionaries who live in the adjoining Monastery.
The parish is part of the Roman Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Cape Town.
The Redemptorist community is part of a worldwide Apostolic Congregation (Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer) at the service of the most abandoned.
Our beautiful church is open daily from 6am to 6pm. All are welcome to visit the church for a time of prayer, reflection or just to draw breath during a busy schedule. You will find all the details of church services on this website.
We extend a particular welcome to those who are searching for a deeper relationship with God, to those who are troubled in any way and to those who have lost contact with the daily life of the Church.
The parish office is open Monday-Friday from 9am to 3pm.
Novena on the Holy Redeemer
On 22nd October the parish held a special Novena service in preparation for next year’s 150th anniversary of the Redemptorists being given the Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
Fr Gerard preached at the very well attended service on the theme of “The significance of the Holy Rosary for family prayer and for our Parish Community”. His emphasis was on the value of the Holy Rosary as a prayer of contemplation and as a prayer that offers peace to our families and to the World.
Fr Gerard also highlighted the Apostolic Letter on the Holy Rosary written by Pope John Paul II.
