Sign Up to Pray for Rachel’s Vineyard

May 23, 2017

Dear friends,

We ask that you help us in prayer over the next couple of weeks.

The next Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat will take place on 13th – 15th June – a healing retreat for those who are struggling with the aftermath of abortion. Sr Andrea is one of the organisers of this retreat, along with a fantastic, small team.

Please help to play your part in the success of the retreat by generating some solid prayer in the run up by committing to a rosary for this intention. You can put your name down for as little or as much as you like – the more prayer the better! Please pray for those attending and those facilitating the retreat.

Here is the link to use to sign up for the prayer rota: https://beta.doodle.com/poll/izfetscrsqby5txw

God Bless and thank you.

Religious Liberty in America

May 12, 2017

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:
