Bernardus Josephus Hafkenscheid , C.s.s.R.

FATHER BERNARD

[...] a remarkable man, the Redemptorist Bernard Hafkenscheid. He brought to the need of the parishes an experience of what would and could help them. In mid-century he was the superior of the American Redemptorists. He had come to the states from his native Holland in 1849 as the vice-provincial; and in 1850, when the American fathers were established into an independent province, he was appointed the first provincial. In the annals of Redemptorist history in Europe and in the states, he can boast of a distinguished list of accomplishments.

After his ordination as a diocesan priest in Rome, where he was a classmate of the future pope, Leo XIII, he was the first native Hollander to become a Redemptorist. In 1834, he had the added distinction of being the first to preach a parish mission in the French language in Belgium. This took place in Themister and under the personal direction of the disciple of St. Clement, Joseph Passerat. When he came to the United States as vice-provincial he had to his credit 15 busy years of tremendous experience giving parish missions, having been in that kind of work almost exclusively during that time. He could give the fruit of those many years of work to the American scene where it was so sorely needed. (Taken from praiseofglory.com: http://praiseofglory.com/redemptorist/firenyc.htm)
