The Messenger | May 2019

In the May issue JOE HAYES SJ looks at the Church in Africa, its development fostered by the celebration of family in the African tradition; KEVIN O’GORMAN SMA, explores how the values of justice, commitment and inclusion learned through sport can flow through to our faith lives; reflecting on the Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth (31 May), FR VINCENT SHERLOCK reflects on the importance of keeping in contact with people, especially those who have shaped us and shared the road with us; and our RE:LINK supplement pays homage to Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah), 1-2 May.

May Messenger continues our series on women who have influenced Church and state life with an article on Margaret Hallahan, foundress of the Dominican Congregation of St. Catherine of Siena and includes regular articles such as art, cookery, crossword, prayer, young readers pages and much more.
