Welcome to the Korean Newsletter
I trust this finds you well and keeping warm in this cold weather. It has been a while since the Newsletter website was updated. Before 2018 vanishes into the mists of memory and 2019 begins with the bang of fireworks I thought that it was time to get to work and finish the year with a flourish. In this update of the site there are a few articles and some news well worth a read. Michael Riordan has been busy at his keyboard producing a few book reviews, giving a detailed account of his recent hip operation, updating us on news from Jeju, but of particular interest among his writings is his account of one Yemeni man's life in Jeju - well worth a read. Jason Antiquera supplies us with an account of some retreats he led through the medium of art. His account is interesting from both a personal point of view and for those with an interest in retreat work. Donal O'Keeffe describes the closing Mass of our 100th Anniversary celebrations in Myeong-dong Cathedral, which took place in November. Thomas Seungwon Nam updates us with news from the Benefactor's Office, the Associate Priest Program, and, importantly, he describes some happenings and developments in the Peace and Reconciliation Ministry. Michael O'Grady keeps us up-to-date on happenings in the Gwangju area and from the Benefactor's Office in the southern area. There are also a few thoughts from the Regional Director about the possible future shape of the Region, and some news from round the Region. If you have not already visited them some older pages might also be of interest. And, as ever, please feel free to contact the Newsletter if the mood takes you. Last but not least, a big word of thanks to Kim Soyoung Cecilia, who works in the magazine office, for supplying and taking the vast majority of photographs used in this issue of the Newsletter.
