April 2020 Vol. 85 No. 3

Our April issue is out now… Our cover features St Patrick’s Father Leo Staples. Fr Leo, from Co Wexford, Ireland, was ordained in 1952 and later that year he set sail for Kenya where he still ministers. In this issue, the editor visits a project that Fr Leo began with the help of his brother Bob (a diocesan priest, now deceased) in 2006 – the Bobleo Childrens Centre for children with physical disabilities in West Pokot County in Kenya. With the help of many people in Ireland and Kenya, the centre has grown over the years and has helped many families along the way. Read the full story on pages 16 and 17. Also in this issue, Fr Tim Redmond takes us on his walking pilgrimage from Canterbury Cathedral to St Peter’s in Rome; Sr Catherine Brennan introduces us to the Eco-Congregation which we can all be part of; Gabriel Dolan traces the origins of the hymn “Amazing Grace” to Zanzibar; and Donal Dorr brings us down the Grand Canal in Dublin. We have all our regular contributors including a lovely recipe for Queen cakes. We hope you enjoy our April issue.
