‘Lifeline’ change name, no longer pro-life

September 1, 2017
Recently there has been same coverage in the press about Lifeline and its proposed name change (http://www.lifelinecounselling.org/news/).  The following is a response I made to the article in the Scottish Catholic Observer:

It is indeed a great shame that a group with such a pro-life and Catholic history should feel it necessary to remove the word life from its name because “the word life has become toxic”.

Even more worrying is the statement “but Lifeline doesn’t mean pro-life, we’re non-judgemental”. Here at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative we are very proud to be pro-life and are certainly not, nor ever have been, judgemental.

More importantly, everyone should be aware that Lifeline can no longer expect the support of the Catholic and Pro-Life communities, not because of their proposed name change but because of the direction they have now chosen to take.

The Lifeline website states under their ‘where to get help’ tab, “If we are not open or able to provide the appropriate support, we recommend the following agencies.” Top of their list is the Chambers Street Sexual Health Centre which, among its services clearly stated on the Lifeline website, is “can refer for abortion”.

Please read and share as I wouldn’t want anyone to be compromised in giving support to this now, no longer, pro-life group.

Thank you for a beautiful donation

August 23, 2017

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.

Happy Birthday Sr Roseann!

August 18, 2017

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!
