Visited Belfast on Wednesday, 21st August, and was glad to visit Holy Cross, Ardoyne for a few hours while there. Belfast on a sunny day was looking great. An important meeting about the Passionists in Africa had just concluded in Holy Cross Monastery when I arrived and it was good to have lunch with those who had travelled from Rome, Zambia and Enniskillen to attend. Sad to record the death of Fr. Kieran McIvor, C.P. in Durban after a lifetime serving in Botswana and South Africa. May he rest in peace. His funeral took place in South Africa where is he is buried. Soon, my visit to Ireland will end and I look forward to returning to St Joseph's Church, Paris. A.T.
