Earthquake in Haiti: when it was thought that life could not get any harder for the people of Haiti, an earthquake has devasted this poor country once again, followed by tropical storm ‘Grace’. There is a huge loss of life and damage to people’s homes and to roads. Places are difficult to access and also dangerous. Fr Rick Frechette, a Passionist priest and a doctor has worked for many years in Haiti. People from St Luke’s Hospital Foundation have arrived in the earthquake region. St Luke’s Hospital in Port au Prince is able to receive patients in need of urgent medical attention. St Joseph’s has stood by Fr Rick and his team in the past and now we will seek to support his relief work in their latest desperate need.


Crisis in Afghanistan: We keep in our prayers the Afghan people in their time of crisis. Images and news from Kabul Airport are heart-breaking. I have been in contact with an Afghan lady, a teacher in Paris for many years, who assists refugees from her country and have assured her of our concern and prayers at this time. In further contacts, I hope we may find ways in which St Joseph’s can help in the future.


Update on Passionist Provincial       Chapter of July 2021: elected:

Provincial: Fr. James Sweeney (Re-elected);

Consultors: Frs. Bernard Lowe, John Friel, Paul Francis Spencer, Anthony Connelly. 

The Passionist Provincial, Fr James Sweeney, has begun a series of visits to communities in Ireland, Scotland and is due to visit St Joseph’s, Paris soon, on a date to be decided. A Consultor will also visit St Joseph’s. A letter to Passionist communities from the Provincial indicates the reasons for these visits. One is to consult about which Passionists are to be assigned to each community and leadership for the next four years. ‘Conversations’ begun at St Joseph’s in 2018 requested by 2016 Provincial Chapter, could be revived as one channel for dialogue. The Provincial in his letter requests that, “our present ministries be reviewed, with a view to adopting a synodal model, emphasising discernment, agreement, and a team approach to life and mission.” and asks, “Should the mission be re-formulated for the next four years? If so, how?”

After these visits to communities, the Provincial and Council will meet on 6-7 September as another step in naming community members.

My wish and fervent hope are that, if you wish, your views will be heard as part of this process. Please pray for Passionists and St Joseph’s for a wise discernment about our future. [Aidan, C.P.]
