Pro-Life Awards- including Sr Roseann

May 9, 2017

We had a great evening on Saturday at the SPUC 2017 Pro-Life Awards Evening. We were welcomed by a piper on the door, and a drink’s reception. Then a new documentary was shown, outlining the history of the pro-life movement in Scotland, over the past 50 years. This was followed by a sumptuous 3 course meal. Finally the awards were presented, by composer Sir James MacMillan. Below is a picture of the winners (including our very own Sr Roseann Reddy) and what they were awarded for. We had some musical interludes by a renowned opera singer and then a talented young singer-songwriter. Our compere for the evening was Deacon Michael Ross. It was a joyful celebration and the awards were a well deserved recognition of much hard work over many years for the pro-life cause.

New CEO for SPUC Scotland

March 25, 2015

We are so pleased to add our “Congratulations” to John Deighan on his appointment as Chief Executive of SPUC Scotland.  The Cardinal Winning Prolife Initiative have a long friendship with John and we know he will do a fantastic job!   Here’s the full statement from SPUC

Statement from SPUC Pro-Life Scotland:

Appointment of New CEO

SPUC Pro-Life Scotland is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr John Deighan as their new Chief Executive Officer following 15 years as Parliamentary Officer with the Catholic Bishop’s Conference in Scotland where a considerable part of his work was in the pro-life field, particularly on the end of life issues of euthanasia and assisted suicide.

John’s long involvement in pro-life work began in the 1990s when he chaired the East Kilbride SPUC Group. He stood as a pro-life parliamentary candidate in both the 1997 General Election and the Paisley South by-election later the same year and has for the past nine years run the Paisley Pro-Life Group.

This strong foundation of pro-life work coupled with his extensive knowledge of the Holyrood Parliament gained through his role with the Scottish Catholic Bishop’s Conference made him the ideal candidate for the position.

Welcoming the appointment, Stephen Shaw, Board Chairman of SPUC Pro-Life Scotland stated

“We are delighted that John has accepted our offer and we feel confident that his appointment will bring a new enthusiasm for the pro-life cause in Scotland. I feel sure his undoubted commitment will encourage others to be more active and will attract new supporters to work in defence of life at all stages of its development, from conception to natural death”
