June 2022 Gazette

Our June issue full of news and features from across the island. On the Platinum Jubilee weekend, Rev’d Canon Paul Arbuthnot looks back on Queen Elizabeth’s reign, one guided by prayer, and how her great faith guides her. Meanwhile, Rev’d Christopher West challenges to rethink Pentecost, read his thoughts on the important date in the Church calendar in our June issue.

Are our churches accessible? Gemma Willis undertook primary research in her Diocese of Cashel, Ferns and Ossary to gauge the accessibility of our churches. Read more about her findings inside.

Diocesan Focus this month is on Connor who have had an eventful year including a hugely successful special Black Santa sit out, and the delayed (due to COVID) service of installation of Bishop George. We meet the clergy from Connor who hold black belts in martial arts and learn how the sport has helped them stay self-disciplined and self-reflective, while keeping their eyes focused on Jesus.

We live in an evidence-based world, so does Christ. And the evidence we yearn of him, is hiding in plain sight, says John Deane O’Keeffe. You’ll find tasty tennis themed treats on our food pages to bake at home, to help you celebrate the All England tennis championships at Wimbledon. All of this and muuch more in your June Gazette.
