Youth 2000 is having a retreat at the beautiful Craig Lodge in Dalmally, from 1st-3rd June. This is a retreat for any young people aged 16-35 years. A chance to deepen your faith and meet lots of other young Catholics! As well as spend time in the beautiful Highlands. We’ll be going, to give a talk. Hope to see you there. See the Youth 2000 website for further details.


The first 16 minutes of a Newsnight programme last week (10th May) looked at some groups in the pro-life movement in the UK, as well as looking at the pro-choice side and discussing the idea of buffer zones. Worth a watch and, although the pro-choice representatives are not questioned in the same way that the pro-life representatives are, it is still good to see both sides rather than the often very biased reporting against pro-life.

The programme can be viewed using this link www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0b2r9yn/newsnight-10052018


Sr Andrea would like to thank everyone for their prayers. Last weeks Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat was beautiful, and participants responded very well. Please continue to keep them in your prayers as they continue their journey of healing.


Big thanks to the Seminarians at the Scot’s College in Rome, who raised over €2000 for the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative, at their annual quiz night! We are so grateful for their support and several of them have also volunteered with us before going to Seminary. May God bless them.


Please join us in praying for the pro-life cause this Wednesday 16th May evening. Mass will be celebrated by Fr Ross Campbell.

The programme for the evening is: Eucharistic adoration 6-7 pm, Rosary 7 pm, Mass 7:30 pm. Followed by refreshments. Join us for as little or as much of the evening as you can.
