St. Alphonsus (1696–1787) is the founder of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, otherwise known as the Redemptorists. They are a missionary order and have communities in the UK, including in London and in Stronsay in the Orkneys.
O God, Who through blessed Alphonsus Mary, Your Confessor and Bishop, fired with love for souls, enriched Your Church with a new family; we beseech You that, taught by his saving counsels and strengthened by his example, we may be enabled happily to come to You.
