St. Alphonsus Liguori, moral theologian and Doctor of the Church, founded the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (Redemptorists) in Naples, Italy in 1732 as a religious congregation of the Catholic Church. The Congregation was formally approved in 1749 by Pope Benedict XIV. The original mission as set forth by St. Alphonsus was to strive to follow the example of Jesus Christ by preaching the Gospel to the poor and the most abandoned, particularly to those who live on the margins of Church and society.
Liguori Publications is a ministry of the Denver Province and was founded in 1947.
