Declan O'Toole

Slain missionary commemorated

On March 21st Bishop Giuseppe Filippi of the diocese of Kotido celebrated a Mass of commemoration at the spot where Fr Declan O'Toole was murdered with two companions in 2002 by soldiers of the Ugandan army.
"Fr. Declan O'Toole was only thirty-one years old, but acted responsibly, was approachable, energetic and a man of all the people. He achieved so much within so short a time he was in Panyangara. He was a member of the diocesan Justice and Peace committee, which initiated peace talks between the Jie and the Dodoth, the Jie and the Bokora and between the Jie and the Acholi. When the disarmament operations began, he was chosen as a member of the disarmament task force". (Bishop Denis Kiwanuka).

  • Theological Method

    From Rome Willem Klaver mhm writes: Fr. Gerry and I had a very interesting encounter last Saturday among which an exchange of thoughts on this pontificate. He gave me two articles to read in relation to "Evangelii Gaudium". I found them very helpful as it gives a good insight into where Pope Francis is coming from in terms of 'doing' theology which is often reduced to or being misunderstood as merely 'being pastoral'. As the Apostolic Exhortation has also inspired the theme for our next Chapter, I thought it might be important reading for the MHM membership.
