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.
Sr Roseann recently visited Cardiff, following an invitation from Brother Ambrose, at the Cardiff University Catholic Chaplaincy. She is grateful to the Sisters of Nazareth for their hospitality during her stay and the warm welcome from the Oratorians at the Chaplaincy. Whilst in Cardiff she spoke about the work of the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative to the students and to the Catholic Medical Association.
Have a look at this interview featuring the young people who attended the March for Life in Washington in January. The Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative gets a few mentions
Why not make a special effort, in this year of the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act, to attend our monthly Pro-Life Mass? Every 3rd Wednesday of the Month, click on image below for dates and further details.
We were delighted to have Fr Gareth Thomas, a Passionist Priest, with us on Wednesday evening to celebrate Mass and it was good to meet members of his youth group who came along. It was also good to see the Knights of St Columba, some families and many of our regular supporters, to pray for the pro-life cause. We heard a report of the positive experience had by the group of young people who attended the March for Life in Washington DC in January.
The group of young people from Scotland who attended the March for Life in Washington DC last week, marched along with at least 700,000 others. They are featured in this official video of the March for Life. As well as attending the march, they took part in an excellent Students for Life conference.
Today is the 44th annual March for Life in Washington D.C., U.S.A.
A group of 12 young people from Scotland have travelled over with SPUC Scotland, to take part in the March for Life. This is the biggest annual pro-life event in the world, with hundreds of thousands expected to attend. There will be a great line-up of speakers. We wish them all the best as they stand up for the life of the unborn child.
Here are some pictures of them before leaving:
