July 13, 2018

Building on the momentum and spirit of the ladies lunch, we are planning a ladies open weekend hosted by the Sisters and our fantastic group of co-workers, taking place here at the pro-life centre. The event will consist of Evening/Afternoon tea, talk on the work of the CWPLI followed by a tour of the centre and a look at our future plans and so much more…

Craft goods, handbags, gifts for sale, plus plenty of time to just enjoy the chat and catch up with Pro-Life friends old and new.

The weekend will be based around 7 available slots where you’ll be able to book a table (for whatever number suits your party):

Friday 16th:  7pm-9pm

Saturday 17th:  12-2pm, 3-5pm & 7-9pm

Sunday 18th: 12-2pm, 3-5 pm & 7-9 pm

Tickets will cost £15 and will include full afternoon/evening tea (Prosecco available separately)

Project Truth Roadshow Success

August 18, 2017

Congratulations to the wonderful team of young people who spent a week travelling around the towns and cities of Scotland earlier this month, spreading the pro-life message. They had many good conversations with passers-by and got around 500 signatures for the petition against the decriminalisation of abortion. We were glad to be able to host them for their training and join them for their closing party, kindly hosted by the Knights of St Columba.

My Fertility Matters (MFM) Project Training

February 14, 2017

The award winning MFM Project runs fertility education workshops for boys and girls in their pre-teen years. We are looking for women and men to become trainers.

“ I can only protect what I value and respect.”

mfm-girls-workshopmfm-boys-workshop

In a society where sex education is geared towards protecting young people from fertility (with negative connotations such as sexual abuse, STIs, abortion), this education programme seeks rather to teach young people to value their own body as a treasure and thus protect their fertility.

The girl’s workshop is titled ‘The Cycle Show’: the girls sit around the stage of life, made of colourful, beautiful materials. They experience what is going on inside their bodies through interactive elements, age appropriate props, storytelling and music.  

The boy’s workshop is titled ‘Agents on a Mission’: a James Bond style adventure around male anatomy, with lots of physical exercise. They also learning about the female body and fertilisation of an egg creating a new life.

Take home message – every one of us was a ‘double champion’ at the start of our lives – made from the champion sperm and the queen egg.

Have a look at their website here: www.mfmprojectuk.org

We would like to bring these fertility education workshops to Scotland and are looking for women and men who would like to train to teach these workshops. Women teach the girl’s workshop and men teach the boy’s workshop. Please get in touch with Jess if you are interested- email almjess@hotmail.com. And you can also contact the UK Co-ordinator Hilary Hodgson info@mfmprojectuk.org  

There is training scheduled in Bollington, Cheshire this year:

Men’s training (“Agents on a Mission”): Thursday 20th April – Friday 21st April

Women’s training (“The Cycle Show”): Saturday 6th May – Sunday 7th May

If there is sufficient interest, then we can also organise training in Glasgow at a later date.
