March 2024 Gazette

Our March issue is out now and full of great news and features from across the island.

Inside, Maurice Dockrell shares the story of his family’s long involvement in Irish politics, beginning with his ancestor Margaret Sarah Dockrell, a trailblazer in tumultuous times in Irish history.

Are you a churchwarden, select vestry member, or indeed a member of the clergy, and have questions about how to manage the parish records? Margaret Hawkins spoke with Dr Susan Hood to provide a comprehensive guide to all your frequently asked questions in part one of a two part series.

Diocesan Review comes from Derry and Raphoe and looks back on an historic year which saw Raphoe Cathedral install its first female dean and the Diocese’s first OLM deacons were ordained.

Christopher West reintroduces us to the magic of reading and Stephen Farrell provides Lenten reflections.

We also have all the usual features like Mother’s Union, Liturgical Notes, Clergy News and our Food and Gardening Pages.

All this and much more in your March Gazette.
