Africa, St Patrick's Missions 

June 2021 Vol. 86 No. 5

Our June issue is out now! On the cover we feature Pope Francis on his visit to Mosul in Iraq in March 2021. In this month’s issue, we have a blessing for fathers on Father’s Day (June 20th); Fr Martin Reilly meets a remarkable woman in his parish in Mzuzu, Malawi; Nadi de Almeida from Brazil looks back on eleven years working in Kenya, South Sudan and Uganda and how it changed her outlook on life; in “A Musical Interlude” Ailish O’Brien enjoys a wonderful piece of music composed by Mozart; Sr Chinyeake C. Ezeani MSHR celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Bishop Joseph Shanahan CSSp, founder of the Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary; Fr Dermot Connolly highlights the people and “Friends” that were interwoven into Jesus’ life and death; and journalist, Sarah Carey reflects on the positive aspects of celebrating her son’s First Holy Communion during the pandemic, “I thought it the loveliest of all the ceremonies my children had experienced. It was an intimate family occasion with just our lovely local priests and removed all the fuss and work.” We have all our regular contributors and competitions… we hope you enjoy our June issue.
