SPUC Youth Conference

March 17, 2018

Sr Andrea and Sr Jess had a great time at the SPUC Youth Conference last weekend, along with 140 young people. Sr Andrea gave a workshop titled ‘Crisis pregnancy: a response’ and was on the discussion panel. There were many interesting speakers at the conference, two of whom spoke about the effects of abortion on women’s mental health. The talks cited a review of the research by pro-choice Prof Fergusson, which has shown that abortion (vs. carrying an unwanted pregnancy to term) is associated with a mild-moderate increase the risk of drug and alcohol misuse, anxiety and suicide.

“I invite you all warmly to come and pray and share a meal with us at St Margaret’s as we are joined by the lovely Br Paolo of the Taize community in France. Br Paolo is deeply passionate about encouraging young people in their journey towards Christ and we are delighted to learn from him, pray with him and one another as we seek to enter ever more deeply into the mystery of God’s love for us.
Br Paolo is seeking to encourage more young Scottish people to journey to Taize and has made known to us of some scholarship opportunities, so any school pupils in particular who may be interested, please encourage them to come along.”

Fertility Forum: Tuesday 27th February

February 22, 2018

The next meeting of the Fertility Forum will be on Tuesday 27th February at 7pm, at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative, 104 Albert Road, Crosshill, Glasgow, G42 8DR. The forum is open for anyone to attend and you don’t need to have come to a previous meeting or be an expert. Please email gospeloflifesisters@googlemail.com if you plan to attend, there is some background information to be emailed out to participants.

The Fertility Forum was created to facilitate discussion about how to promote the Church’s beautiful teaching on fertility and sexuality. We had our initial brainstorming meeting in January, which was a great success and had 21 participants. The discussion was divided into several areas: methods of NFP, apps, NaPro Technology, marriage preparation and education (within the family, parishes and schools). Some thinking has gone on since then and several participants have contributed paragraphs about these areas of discussion. We look forward to continuing the discussion on Tuesday, as there is a need for more initiatives to develop to promote fertility awareness. Please join us if this is a topic you are interested in.
