Pray for Baby Gabriel

March 27, 2018

We were praying for baby Gabriel whilst he was in his mother’s womb, as he had been diagnosed with spina bifida and had an operation in-utero. Baby Gabriel was born in January, but is only now full term. He is now at home happily feeding and growing and bringing much joy to those around him.

Baby Gabriel has a cast on his legs, to treat dislocated hips and clubbed feet. Please pray for ongoing healing of his hips and feet and for a continuing improvement in the movement in his legs. Pray for the doctors who are treating him to be guided as to the best course of treatment. Pray for the family as they take baby Gabriel to all his hospital appointments.

May God bless baby Gabriel!

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.
