The Institute will be hosting its seventh triennial conference this fall at the Redemptorist Shrine of St. Anne de Beaupre, Quebec, Canada. Participants are welcome to arrive for the evening of September 27. The sessions of the conference will take place during the 28th and 29th. Departures are scheduled after an early Mass and breakfast on Friday, September 30th. The theme for this year's conference is "Redemptorist Ministry on the Margins" and speakers will explore how the Redemptorists in North America have reached out to folks on the church's periphery through ministry with the deaf, orphans, addicts, and immigrants. There will also be a session looking at the Redemptorists' movement to the edges of a new American empire in Puerto Rico following the Spanish American War. Of course, since we are meeting at one of the most important pilgrimage sites in North America, we will also get a thorough tour and introduction to the Shrine and its ministry. For further details, check out the conference brochure. Sign up soon, because space is limited.

Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013, at the Redemptorist History Conference in Canandaigua, NY, conference participants were treated with the opportunity to watch in action one of the great American Redemptorist preachers of the 20th century. Stephen Kessinger, who works on the current production of the Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help at Boston's Mission Church, has done the tremendous service of making some of Fr. Manton's sermons available online. They can be found at http://vimeo.com/channels/47210.

With the latest issue of the Redemptorist Historical Bulletin the Institute for Redemptorist Historical Studies becomes completely paperless. Going forward, all issues will be accessible online. The articles in the present issue cover Redemptorist ministries to 19th century New Yorkers, a retrospective on the life and work of Father James Mason, C.Ss.R., of the Toronto Province, and an article on Redemptorist brothers. We are interested in article ideas (and writers!) for the fall issue. Contact the editors with your comments and proposals: Fr.
