Mission Statement

"Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom." Luke 12:32

We the faithful of the Holy Redeemer Chinese Catholic Church, in union with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia and all Chinese Catholics throughout the world, proclaim to everyone the Good News that Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd and Redeemer of the World, who offers to all who follow Him the light of Life. 
Sharing a common ethnic bond and baptized into Christ Jesus, we desire to bring His Light to all by proclaiming the Gospel through our words and actions.  We are especially challenged to meet the spiritual needs of Chinese American and immigrants of Chinese ethnic descent.  Holy Redeemer is a center of evangelization and worship serving the needs of the Delaware Valley Chinese community.  We therefore commit ourselves to:
  • celebrate the Mass, the other Sacraments, and spiritual devotions in English and Chinese so that all Chinese may experience greater understanding, conversion and personal witness to Christ.
  • imitate the love of Jesus Christ through service to the Chinese American community, especially to immigrants.
  • form fraternal bonds with other Chinese Christians and Asian American organizations.
  • provide quality elementary school education that proclaims the Good News to our youth and their families.
  • promote spiritual, social and recreational activities for Chinese American youths that foster community service, evangelization and Christian faith.
  • act as Christian role models particularly in our community.
  • foster and promote Chinese ethnic pride within our church and school through programs that teach and preserve Chinese culture.
  • promote leadership from within the Chinese Catholic community and encourage vocations to the ordained ministry and religious life.
  • provide resources necessary to carry out our mission.
We pray to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit through the intercession of Mary "Our Lady, Queen of China" and through St. Joseph and the Blessed Chinese Martyrs.  May Jesus, the Good Shepherd, guide us in our earthly journey and to our heavenly home.
