We had a lovely celebration for Sr Roseann’s birthday this week- starting with a birthday vigil at the Pro-Life Mass. A stunning cake was provided by Deacon Paul Denny (thanks to his Mum and God’s providence). We had another birthday cake at lunchtime on Sister’s actual birthday and then went out for an Italian meal in the evening. Happy Birthday to Sr Roseann and we wish her many more to come!

Thanks to 3 volunteers from the University cell of the Knights of St Columba who came over last week to help us check, clean and assemble cots to be given to families we help. The Knights of St Columba are always supportive of us and we enjoy seeing them at our monthly Pro-Life Masses.

Last week American President Donald Trump, accompanied by religious leaders, announced a National Day of Prayer and signed an executive order to repeal the Johnson amendment, with the purpose of promoting religious liberty and free speech. The Johnson amendment had removed not-for profit organisations’ tax exemption if they expressed political opinions. He also commended the Little Sisters of the Poor in standing up for their beliefs, when the government under President Obama had wanted the Sisters to pay for medical insurance that provided contraception and abortion. A video of President Trump’s speech in the Rose Garden at the White House can be viewed here:

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:
Ikea bags – the big blue ones (we use these to package clothing that we give out)
Baby boy outfits for aged 0-3 months (please only donate clean laundered clothing and clearly label the bag ‘BOY 0-3 MONTHS’)

On this the day of the Lord’s Resurrection, we celebrate the new life that Jesus gives us. We may struggle in life, we may have sufferings, we may make mistakes, we may feel discouraged. There’s not a feeling that we experience that Jesus didn’t live through himself. Let us remember that Jesus has done away with our sins in his death on the cross. He lived, died and rose from the dead for us – this life on earth is only the start of an eternity with God. Death can have no power over us ultimately. Alleluia! May God bless you all.
