Africa, St Patrick's Missions 
March 2024, Vol. 89 No. 2

Our March issue is out now! On page 6, Noel Connolly pays a very moving tribute to his great friend Fr Tony Conry (1938-2023) who spent 54 years as a Volunteer Priest with St Patrick’s Missionary Society in Brazil. Fr John Cullen celebrates St Patrick, our patron saint, on page 8. He tells us how St Patrick was the outsider who became an insider. Mary B Spila’s article on page 16, ‘Everyone is Irish’ celebrates St Patrick’s Day in Chicago where even the Chicago River turns green for a day! Fr PJ McCamphill tells of a beautiful experience of generosity and welcome which he enjoyed in Kitui, Kenya, where he worked for many years. He also shares a moving personal tribute to his dear friend St Patrick’s Fr Martin Kavisu who died tragically last year.


We hope you enjoy the articles we have for you in this edition. May the light of St Patrick shine into the cracks in our lives and in our world. We wish you a happy St Patrick’s Day and happy Easter.
