St Patrick's Missions 

April 2021 Vol. 86 No. 3

Our April issue is out now. On the cover are Fr Jimmy Kennedy SPS, Vicar Emaze and Sasha Drewett in Limpopo, South Africa. This photo was taken on 1st February 2020 at Tshitanini Shrine, Limpopo on the 30th Anniversary of the martyrdom of Blessed Benedict Daswa. Fr Jimmy Kennedy, from Co Clare, works in South Africa and reports on the situation in his parish: “The last year has been quite difficult. I have been mainly helping families with food parcels via St Vincent de Paul with funds from St Patrick’s. People have been hit hard. My main ministry now is funerals and food for the poor.…”

 

In this issue, we feature the beautiful poem “Begin” by Brendan Kennelly; Fr Michael Kane invites us to enjoy April, the month of promise; Eamonn Mulvihill is “Searching for meaning when fate and faith combine”; John Cassidy tells us a love story for Lent; Fr Niall Martin asks “Where do you find Jesus?”; and we have all our regular contributors including a lovely Chocolate Easter cake recipe to enjoy. Wishing you a safe and happy Easter.
