REBOOT! Live! 27th July at 7 pm. Bute Hall, University of Glasgow

June 24, 2017

There is a great event coming up next month, called Reboot! Live! that we are really looking forward to. Chris Stefanick is a world renowned speaker who is coming to Glasgow especially for this event! A great opportunity for all ages, those of strong faith and of no faith for an evening to be inspired…. here’s more information from the organisers:

Centred on the heart of the Gospel, REBOOT! Live! reminds people of the love of God for them, and of their great purpose in life; and, shows them how to live the Gospel in everyday ways, in their everyday lives.

CHRIS STEFANICK is an internationally acclaimed author and speaker. He has devoted his life to inspiring people to live a bold, contagious faith. Archbishop Charles. J. Chaput, OFM, called Chris, “one of the most engaging defenders of the Christian faith on the scene today.”

Check out some of his videos on YouTube by searching: “Chris Stefanick”. One of our favourites is “You’re Kind of A Big Deal”! Or go to his website: www.reallifecatholic.com

The aim of this event is to “Reboot” one’s faith… therefore, why not bring along those friends or family members that are far from the Church? This event could be the catalyst for their return! 🙂

Reminder: Pilgrimage to Dunfermline next Sunday

June 4, 2017

This years National Pilgrimage to Dunfermline, in honour of St Margaret of Scotland, is on Sunday 11th June 2017.

We are leaving from Glasgow at 10 am. If anybody wants a lift from Glasgow to Dunfermline, please phone or email as soon as possible 0141 433 2680  gospeloflifesisters@googlemail.com

The programme for the day is:

10 am: Pilgrims arrive and there will be regular guided tours of sites associated with St Margaret. Covered area in Pittencrief Park available for lunch.

2 pm: Procession led by Archbishop Cushley with the relic of St Margaret, leaves Pittencrief Park to walk through the streets of Dunfermline to St Margaret’s Memorial Church

3 pm: Holy Mass at St Margaret’s Memorial Church, followed by blessings with St Margaret’s relic

“This will be a real family event to which everybody in Scotland – not just Catholics – are invited given that St Margaret is an inspirational figure for all Scots as well as a heavenly protectress of the people of our land,” said Fr Chris Heenan, Parish Priest of St Margaret’s Memorial Church.

The roots of the summer pilgrimage dates back to June 1250 when the relics of Saint Margaret were translated to a new shrine in Dunfermline Abbey following her canonisation that year by Pope Innocent IV. An annual summer pilgrimage to Dunfermline soon emerged becoming a celebrated fixture within Scottish national life until the late 16th century. It was then re-established in 1899 and continued again until 1974. The pilgrimage was revived in 2015, after an absence 41 years.

Thank you for your donations

May 5, 2017

Thanks so much for all your support. Over the months of March and April, your donations have been used to support 93 vulnerable families.

We have been blessed to have many individuals coming to the door to donate baby equipment they are no longer in need of. Before Easter, the Knights of St Columba (Council 8, Clydebank) donated Easter eggs and we were able to redistribute these. In April we also had a visit from Fr Michael John, parish priest of St James’ Church in St Andrews, who drove over to Glasgow with a van full of items that had been donated by his parishioners.

Items that we are in need of currently are:

Baby baths

Cotton wool

Ikea bags – the big blue ones (we use these to package clothing that we give out)

Prams

Moses baskets

Baby boy outfits for aged 0-3 months (please only donate clean laundered clothing and clearly label the bag ‘BOY 0-3 MONTHS’)
