Reds South Africa take a lead on Red Wednesday


COREAM would like to thank Fr. Anthony Padua C.Ss.R. from South Africa for organising an event in Solidarity with persecuted Christians all over the world on Red Wednesday.

Fr. Anthony invited his Parishioners with the following words :

“Please try to wear some clothing with the colour Red in honour of our brothers and sisters who are being persecuted and dying for our Christian faith. A special Mass will be celebrated at St. Anthony Church of Padua Uitenhage this evening.”

A huge sea of Red at St. Anthony of Padua 6pm Mass in Uitenhage: It was a great Ceremony preached by Fr. Gerard.

Red Wednesday celebrations took place around the world.

For example the House of Parliament in London and the Colosseum in Rome went Red to show that we stand with our persecuted brothers and sisters (read more about this here: https://acnuk.org/our-campaigns/red-wednesday-2018/).

Thank you to Fr. Anthony Padua and the Redemptorist Community of South Africa for their support.
