St John Bosco


Enjoy yourself as much as you like – if only you keep from sin – St John Bosco   Saint John Bosco loved young boys and young boys loved him. He loved them because he knew they were God’s children and capable of great things, and they loved him because he loved, encouraged, taught and […]

When we give talks to school groups on all aspects of abortion ranging from methods of abortion to the work of The Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative we always ask pupils to think of questions to ask at the end of the sessions.
