Pope Francis recently announced that from March 19 on St Joseph’s feast day, a Year of the Family will begin. The celebration will conclude with the World Meeting of Families in Rome on June 26, 2022. The introductory article in this issue is on the year of the family. It is written by Bishop Paul Bird who was editor of the Majellan for 13 years.
The Summer issue of The Majellan is out now. There are articles on the importance of Advent, kindness being shown to others during a difficult year, Bishop Paul Bird’s take on Pope Francis’ recent encyclical ‘Fratelli Tutti’ and school students expressing their optimism about future job prospects and the experience of working outside the classroom during the pandemic.
Spring is upon us and with it comes hope that we are moving out from the shadows of the pandemic that has been upon us for some time now.
We hope this issue helps bring you comfort and lifts your spirit out of the darkness of the winter cold.
As the pandemic took hold across the world including Australia, not surprisingly the Winter issue has a focus on COVID-19 and how people coped during lockdown.

The new-look Autumn edition of The Majellan magazine is out this week. The re-designed magazine, now in its 72nd year, has articles on how families have coped with the severe drought and the devastating bushfires, the impact of climate change and how one family has bravely dealt with their child’s autism.
