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.
When: Saturday 22nd July 2017, 3pm.
Where: St Columba’s R.C. Church, 74 Hopehill Road, Glasgow, G20 7HH
3 pm: Procession followed by speakers:
4 pm: Benediction, Rosary and Veneration of relics of St Anne
4:30 pm: Sunday Vigil Mass followed by food and refreshments
We are in desperate need of donations of toys, particularly for children under 5 years old. Due to the volume of requests for toys that we receive, our toy stock has been depleted. We are having to turn away requests for toys for children in vulnerable families at the moment, until donations of toys are received. So please, if you are having a clear-out this summer, bring your toys to us! The kind of toys that we need are ones that stimulate a child and encourage development. Usually they do not want soft toys, as the children already have soft toys. We only want good quality toys that are clean, without parts missing and in good working order.
You can bring donations to us at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative, 104 Albert Road, Crosshill, Glasgow, G42 8DR. We are open on weekdays from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm. Please phone in advance (0141 433 2680) just to check that we are around.
Many thanks in advance for your help. God bless.
