Upcoming Events March 14, 2017 (Tuesday) “National Seelos Shrine & The Seelos Center”, Superior Seafood Restaurant and Riverwalk Outlet Shopping Please join us as we travel the Blessed Seelos Center. You will be inspired by this Redemptorist priest who was beatified by Pope John Paul II in the Solemn Jubilee Year 2000. Father Seelos possessed great mystical gifts due to his intense prayer life. His dedication to ministry with cheerful holiness makes him still an outstanding model for clergy, religious and laity alike. As a traveling preacher and lifelong friend of the poor and destitute, Seelos was a spiritual father to tens of thousands. Despite his early death at age 48, so profound was his missionary zeal that sickness, persecution, and even the upheaval caused by a civil war could not stop him.
