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.

A new documentary film celebrating the past 100 years of Catholic Education in Scotland, has been released. It is well worth watching and can be viewed here:

The film features our own Sr Roseann and many other well known people, some of whom have attended Catholic schools, such as; Professor Sir Tom Devine, Sir Tom Farmer (Entrepreneur), Mark Millar MBE (Comic Book Writer), Maura Currie (Broadcaster), Kieran Tierney (Footballer), First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Ruth Davidson MSP, Richard Leonard MSP.

The film covers three key themes-

1. The History of the Education Scotland Act 1918

2. The memories of those who attended Catholic schools.

3. The current crop of Catholic students & looking towards the future.

 

 


Please pray for all participants on this week’s Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat, which Sr Andrea will be leading. This is for anyone who has been affected by abortion. Pray that they would find peace, love and a new beginning in their lives.

Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC) Scotland will be hosting the next stop on the Right Side Tour in Dumbarton on next Wednesday the 9th May. This is the eight stop on the tour, which has been gaining momentum. If you live near Dumbarton – this event is not to be missed!
The Right Side Tour aims to inform people about the campaign to decriminalise abortion. The pro-abortion movement continues to grow even more extreme in their agenda, now pushing for the decriminalisation of abortion. This would mean the extension of abortion up to birth for any reason. Abortion remains a criminal offence under law, unless it satisfies the conditions of the 1967 Abortion Act. The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) have launched a campaign called “We Trust Women,” aiming to remove abortion from criminal law. This would null the 1967 Abortion Act, and any existing restrictions on abortion with it, includign the 24 week time-limit. This would be the most drastic extenstion of abortion since 1967.
To find out more about the issue and learn how to help, come to the event. It will be on Wednesday, 9th May at 7:30pm in St. Patrick’s Hall on Strathleven Place. We look forward to seeing you there.

A 15,000 name petition was delivered by SPUC Scotland to Nicola Sturgeon, on the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act coming into force. This petition is against the further liberalisation of abortion in Scotland- BPAS is spearheading a campaign for the laws regulating abortion to be scrapped and instead to have abortion on demand up to birth, under the slogan “We Trust Women”. Over the past 50 years 500,000 lives in Scotland have been lost to abortion. The petitions were in 5 boxes and there were 5 empty prams, each representing 100,000 lives lost. See video below:
