Africa, St Patrick's Missions 
May 2022 Vol. 87 No. 4

Our May issue is out now. On the cover we feature the Church of Mary Immaculate on Inis Meáin, Co Galway, Ireland. Matt Nolan takes us on a tour of the Church and the island. The Church has beautiful stained glass windows from the Harry Clarke Studios. It would be a lovely place to visit this summer. The Legion of Mary celebrated 100 years in 2021 and in this issue Fr Andy Keating remembers the importance of the Legion of Mary when he was a student and when he was ministering in Nigeria; Fathers Richard Filima and Damian Martell report from COP26; John Deehan celebrates Saint Bede – an intellect, a teacher, a polymath, and a very holy monk – his feast day is May 26th. On May 22nd Pauline Jaricot will be beatified in Lyon, France. Pauline was the foundress of the Pontifical Society for the Propagation of the Faith in 1822. Julieann Moore tells her story and concludes “As we journey towards her beatification and celebrate 200 years of her fundraising and faith-raising genius, may Pauline continue to inspire each of us to offer the same solidarity and support to those in need, and may we remember the countless missionaries and millions of people that have benefited from Pauline’s pennies and prayers to date.” We hope you enjoy our May issue.
