June 2023 Gazette

Our June issue is online and in print now, and full of news from across the island with plenty of features for long summer evening reading.

We have a special focus on tackling hatred and racism in our June issue, with a look at  the work and focus of the Primate’s Ethnic Diversity, Inclusion and Racial Justice Reference Group.

Dean Stephen Farrell has written a very special letter to the newly confirmed in the Church of Ireland, reminding them that in their church they are part of a family, belonging there, and belonging to God.

Rev’d Conor O’Reilly writes about the raw pain of grief, shortly after losing his beloved wife Mollie after her battle with cancer.

We also have an exclusive interview with the Archbishop of Armagh, Primate of All Ireland, Most Rev’d John McDowell, where he discusses the current challenges of reconciliation.

The Connor Diocese was well represented at Coronation Week, and we hear of the experiences of Johnny Conn, Trevor and Karen Douglas, at the royal celebrations.

Diocesan Focus comes from Cork, Cloyne and Ross.

All this and much more in your June Gazette.
