The autumn edition of the Tuam Diocesan Magazine New Dawn was launched in Cuan Modh, 
Newport on Thursday October 27th.
As editor, Fr Fintan Monahan has directed from its birth the fifteen
editions of Tuam diocese’s New Dawn magazine. His final words in that
capacity in the current issue convey his sense of shock on learning of his
Episcopal elevation by Pope Francis and appointment to the See of Killaloe.”I will miss the Archdiocese very much after 25 very happy years of
service,”  says the new, affable bishop in his final editorial. “One of the
most enjoyable projects I have been involved in was the diocesan magazine.
It was truly a labour of love and a delight to be able to report some of the
many wonderful events in the diocese.”

Coverage and pictures of the ordination of the new bishop are among the many
contributions in the current bumper issue which is now on sale at churches
and other outlets throughout the diocese.

Among photos of the many presentations to Bishop Fintan to mark his
ordination is one of a beautifully crafted emblem of St Jarlath’s broken
wheel by Tuam Men’s Shed.

This lively issue also records a variety of colourful events including
reflections by some of the 20-strong young people from across the
Archdiocese on their nine-day pilgrimage to World Youth Day in Krakow,
Poland.

There are observations on various other pilgrimages including the first
transatlantic pilgrimage flight to Knock from Boston. Documented also is a
memorable experience of the canonisation of St Teresa of Calcutta.

The coming together of St Mary’s Church and Holy Trinity Church of Ireland
in Westport to adopt an eco approach to worship in response to the
encyclical Laudato Si of Pope Francis is recalled.

Communities in Glenamaddy and Williamstown have also responded to the same
promptings of Pope Francis.

Burrishoole, the stunning parish in the heart of the Great Western Greenway,
is featured. “Everything about Burrishoole has its distinctiveness whether
it’s the churches, landmarks or history of the small villages and the
stories,” writes Daragh Small.

Stories on young people’s activities throughout the Archdiocese abound and
there are photographs of golden and jubilee celebrations; of 800 years of
continuous Mass at Ballintubber Abbey, and articles as Gaeilge on Aifreann
do na Gaeilgeoiri agus muintir na háite I gCill Chiaráin, and Lá Álainn ar
Oileán Mhic Dara.

There’s also the recall by Fr Pat Donnellan of Maynooth’s sole Sigerson Cup
victory forty years ago in which Fr Pat himself played no small part.
