Thank you to all the pro-life women who came to our ladies’ lunch on Saturday, in honour of St Margaret of Scotland. We know how much work you have done for the pro-life cause over the years. It was great to have such a big gathering (436 women) and was a very encouraging and enjoyable afternoon. We will be in touch with you all soon. Here’s a video to remember the occasion:

We have had a prayer request, and permission to share this information and photo publically:
Please could you pray for 12-week old Baby Gabriel who has been diagnosed with severe spina bifida, and is currently paralysed from the waist down. This is a picture of the precious gift of life, Gabriel. We boldly approach God’s throne, surrendering the child to God and coming with expectancy for full healing on Gabriel in Jesus’ Name. Amen
So, get praying! And share this information so that others can also pray for baby Gabriel and family.

We are really looking forward to next year’s World Meeting of Families, which will be held in Dublin, Ireland! A joyful and enriching occasion for adults, young people and children to meet and share, pray and reflect, grow in faith and love, and most of all celebrate family life. The World Meeting of Families is the largest international gathering of families, held in a different country every few years.
Dates: 21st – 26th August 2018
Save the date and find out if your diocese is organising a trip that you can join. We will keep you posted when we know of the Archdiocese of Glasgow’s plans.

Thanks so much for all your support. Over the months of May and June, your donations have been used to support 73 vulnerable families. We have had phone calls from many women in crisis pregnancies needing support. We also had a successful Rachel’s Vineyard retreat, for those suffering after abortion, with 12 participants. We hope to start up a new team in the Dundee area to run Rachel’s Vineyard retreats there too.
We have been blessed to have many individuals coming to the door to donate baby equipment they are no longer in need of. The Amazon wish list, in June, was a big success and we had all of the items we wanted donated! We have had a great response to our appeal for toys this month- thanks to your generosity we have enough toys for the moment and will once again be able to respond to toy requests.
The Knights of St Columba have been brilliant in providing practical support to us- a group from the University came to check, clean and pack cots to be given out. Brian Henry brought a group of Knights to paint the doors of the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative building.
And of course we are ever grateful to our regular volunteers who come to sort through all the donations and make up packs of clothes and toiletries to give out to those in need.
In terms of what we need now, we are well stocked with donations of items and clothing to be sorted through.
If anyone is going to IKEA, please buy some of those big blue bags for us- we use these to package clothing that we give out.
