St Patrick's Missions 

September/October 2020 Vol. 85 No. 7

Our September/October issue is out later this week! Is this issue, Fr Peter Finegan reflects on St Paul; in Kenya Fr Gabriel Dolan outlines how community health volunteers, Boda Boda drivers and the Haki Yetu Team are helping young people cope during the Covid-19 pandemic; John Maloney reflects on the relationship between his parish in Manchester, England and Riwoto Parish in South Sudan; Fr Daniel Beda visits a rural dispensary in Kenya; and Fr Frankie McAuliffe concludes his series by “Finding God in the present moment.” We have all our regulars – Monica Corish, Dr Donal Dorr, Fr Dermot Connolly, Amy Heffernan and the Crossword. On the cover we feature our World as September 1st marks the first day of the Season of Creation (Sept 1st to Oct 4th) and it is also World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.

 

On a personal note, with this issue, I take my leave of Africa magazine and move on to my next appointment. Working on our magazine has been an honour, a challenge and a privilege. My sincere thanks to all who sent in articles, letters and cards – we value immensely your support of St Patrick’s Missionary Society. A warm welcome to Fr Seán Deegan who takes over as editor.

Go mbeannaí is go gcoisnigh Dia sibh anois agus i gcónaí. (May God bless and protect you now and always.)
