To mark the passing of the 1967 Abortion Act, over 100 people, including our very own Sr. Andrea came together to form a human chain in silent witness on Lothian Road, Edinburgh last Saturday. Old, young and the very young made the journey to witness to life. There were lollies, balloons and a wee bit of sun intermittently to help us on our way. Next year marks the 50th year since abortion was made legal in Britain and the witness to the lives lost grows steadily…
This July, Sr Andrea will be one of the leaders of a group of pilgrims who are heading to World Youth Day in Krakow – many of whom are volunteers for the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative.
In order to make this pilgrimage a reality – the group need to raise funds for travel and accommodation costs.
Please support this event by coming along to the concert they have organised. There will be some great entertainment through a mix of musical genres and it’s BYOB too – why not make a wee night of it.

Srs Andrea & Roseann travelled to Perth last week to receive a cheque for £3000 due to the hard work of a group of girls from Turnbull High School, Bishopbriggs. The girls have been working diligently on preparing a presentation about the work we do at CWPLI for the last few months.
It all started when the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative invited pupils to take part in their initiative. The girls formed a team, did some research, chose a charity (us!), made contact and visited the Prolife Initiative and put together a presentation. It was this presentation that won them the money and the cheque was handed over to the Sisters in Perth.
It goes with out saying that the work these girls put in and their passion on behalf of the CWPLI came through and helped them to win the money for us. We want to say a huge Thank You on behalf of the women and babies we help.
