Pro-Life Awards- including Sr Roseann

May 9, 2017

We had a great evening on Saturday at the SPUC 2017 Pro-Life Awards Evening. We were welcomed by a piper on the door, and a drink’s reception. Then a new documentary was shown, outlining the history of the pro-life movement in Scotland, over the past 50 years. This was followed by a sumptuous 3 course meal. Finally the awards were presented, by composer Sir James MacMillan. Below is a picture of the winners (including our very own Sr Roseann Reddy) and what they were awarded for. We had some musical interludes by a renowned opera singer and then a talented young singer-songwriter. Our compere for the evening was Deacon Michael Ross. It was a joyful celebration and the awards were a well deserved recognition of much hard work over many years for the pro-life cause.
