Pro-Life Awards- including Sr Roseann

May 9, 2017

We had a great evening on Saturday at the SPUC 2017 Pro-Life Awards Evening. We were welcomed by a piper on the door, and a drink’s reception. Then a new documentary was shown, outlining the history of the pro-life movement in Scotland, over the past 50 years. This was followed by a sumptuous 3 course meal. Finally the awards were presented, by composer Sir James MacMillan. Below is a picture of the winners (including our very own Sr Roseann Reddy) and what they were awarded for. We had some musical interludes by a renowned opera singer and then a talented young singer-songwriter. Our compere for the evening was Deacon Michael Ross.

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’)
