Sr Andrea would like to thank everyone for their prayers. Last weeks Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat was beautiful, and participants responded very well. Please continue to keep them in your prayers as they continue their journey of healing.
Last year was the 50th anniversary of the passing of the 1967 Abortion Act in the UK. Sr Roseann is answering 50 questions about abortion, to mark the 50th anniversary.
Question 50: Thanks for taking part, any more questions?
Thank you to all the pro-life women who came to our ladies’ lunch on Saturday, in honour of St Margaret of Scotland. We know how much work you have done for the pro-life cause over the years. It was great to have such a big gathering (436 women) and was a very encouraging and enjoyable afternoon. We will be in touch with you all soon. Here’s a video to remember the occasion:
We recently received a lovely layette from the Our Lady, Mother and Queen Rosary Group.
As you can see from the pictures it was all beautifully wrapped up and I promise when I finished taking the pictures I reassembled it back to its former glory. I just wanted to share the beautiful contents and all the love and care which had gone into producing such a beautiful gift.
Thank you to all involved.
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.
