September/October 2021 Vol. 86 No. 7

Our September/October issue is out now. On the cover we celebrate the Season of Creation (which starts today) and Mission Sunday 2021 (October 24th). In this issue Miriam McKernan from Scotland brings us on a walk around her local area of the South Uist; Alessandra Beccacini, from Rome, celebrates Dante Alighieri and his Divine Comedy (Divina Commedia) as this year marks the 700th anniversary of his death; in Mission Folk we meet Society priests and their parishioners as they mark the Season of Creation in Kenya, South Sudan and Ireland; Fr PJ McCamphill looks back to student days in the 1960s and early 70s when the hurling career of a fellow missionary priest, Fr Sean (Seanie) Barry from Co Cork, caught the attention of GAA fans; the 52nd Eucharistic Congress takes place in Budapest this month and Ailish O’Brien recalls the joy of taking part in the opening Mass of the Congress in 2012 when it was held In Dublin. We hope you enjoy our autumn issue.
