Almost all Spiritans working in Kenya, and a number serving in South Sudan or Tanzania were among some 40 participants who came together in Nairobi for a workshop on safeguarding children. The training was provided by the Spiritan Safeguarding Office of the Irish Province which had previously given a similar course to Spiritans in Ghana, Mozambique and Tanzania, and to another religious congregation in Nigeria.

In the Footsteps of the Founders Paris, 25th – 28th Oct ~ Ms Mary Jo Delaney

Paris is arguably one of the most cultured cities on the planet. As this year’s Spiritan pilgrimage neared, I couldn’t but be distracted by thoughts of its architectural sites, objets d’art and museums. At Dublin Airport on departure day, I could almost hear the accordion playing La Vie en Rose!

The wheel has turned full circle! ~ John Horan C.S.Sp.

Having arrived in Brazil in late October 1966, I ministered in the parish of Florida Paulista in the state of São Paulo for a total of 8 years, in Adamantina for a much shorter period and, for a while in the late 1970s, in New York where I was studying in Fordham University.
