The Third Annual CMA Youth Conference
Catholics in Healthcare: Building a Culture of Life

1:30pm – 5:30pm
The Catholic Medical Association invites all young (18-35yrs) Catholics in healthcare (doctors, nurses, medical students, nursing students, pharmacists etc) to the Third Annual CMA Youth Conference. Speakers and a panel will explore the meaning of the culture of life in relation to healthcare and how to live by that culture in our professional and personal lives.

There will be a small fayre to showcase the work of lay and religious organisations related to healthcare and tea and coffee will be provided during the break.

Entry is by donation (suggested donation: £5, payable at the door). Please be generous in order to enable the continued work of the Catholic Medical Association’s Committee for the New Evangelisation (CMANE). The CMANE supports young Catholics in healthcare.

Please note a change from our usual timetable. As this month’s pro-life Mass falls on the Feast of the Assumption, we will be joining the Parish of Blessed John Duns Scotus for their Mass at 7pm. There will be no adoration / rosary / refreshments. You are still very welcome to join us in praying for the pro-life cause.

Venue: Blessed John Duns Scotus RC Church, 270 Ballater Street, Gorbals, Glasgow, G5 0YT

 


Please Pray

Please pray for a couple who are thinking about abortion. Pray for them to be given the courage and support they need to continue with the pregnancy and pray for protection for their unborn child.


The Project Truth teams are out spreading the pro-life message around Scotland this week! We were delighted to have been able to host them for their training night on Sunday. You can look at their facebook page for updates.

 


The Knights of St Columba in Barrhead held a fundraising quiz night last Friday and kindly donated £210 to support our pro-life work. May God bless them in all that they do.


The teenage pregnancy rate in the UK has halved since 2007. A study by BPAS showed that it is due to teenagers being more education and family focussed and socialising online more than face to face. Here’s a BBC article on this topic. This shows that a change in behaviour, rather than contraceptive services, is what has made a difference.
