Thank you to all the pro-life women who came to our ladies’ lunch on Saturday, in honour of St Margaret of Scotland. We know how much work you have done for the pro-life cause over the years. It was great to have such a big gathering (436 women) and was a very encouraging and enjoyable afternoon. We will be in touch with you all soon. Here’s a video to remember the occasion:

BBC4 has done a TV series about various Benedictine monasteries in the UK. Each episode has scenes filmed at the monastery- from the monks at prayer and work. Calm, quiet, uplifting and an interesting insight to the lives of monks, which an outsider would not normally see. The monasteries covered are: Downside Abbey, Pluscarden Abbey and Belmont Abbey.

We are very much looking forward to meeting the 430 ladies who are coming to the Ladies’ Lunch on Saturday 18th November. Tickets have all gone, plus extas! Tomorrow- Friday 10th November at 12 noon is the deadline for letting Sr Roseann know of any dietary requirements: vegetarian / vegan / gluten free / dairy free / allergies. If you do not request a special dietary meal by tomorrow, then one will not be provided on the day.

A TV series has recently been on channel 5 about five young women who live a party lifestyle visiting the convent of the Sacred Heart in Swaffham, Norfolk. Beautiful to see the positive effect that this spiritual experience has on the young women. Worth a ‘watch again’ if you’ve not seen it.

Question 36: “What do other religions say about abortion?”


Sr Roseann was delighted and surprised to receive the highest honour anyone outside the Knights of St Columba can receive – the Columba Cross.

Outgoing Supreme Knight, Charlie McCluskey, presented Sr Roseann with the Columba Cross for her exceptional work within the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative over the past 20 years and her solid support of the Knights of St Columba. This was presented at the recent Knights of St Columba Supreme Council banquet.

Archbishop Philip Tartaglia also presented Charlie McCluskey with a papal award and welcomed him into the Knights of St Gregory.

What a wonderful evening and fantastic honour, massive congratulations to both and very well deserved.
