The effects of abortion on women are recognised and frequently discussed. Men are dismissed as irrelevant to the abortion decision and procedure. However, many men are broken by losing their child through abortion. This article tells a few of their stories:

Congratulations to Fr Bernard Mourinan, Fr John-Paul McShane, Fr Jim Dean and Fr Jonathon Whitworth, who have all been ordained to the priesthood in the last week, in the Dioceses of Motherwell, Glasgow and Paisley. There has been much celebration and joy. Around the feast of St Peter and St Paul (29th June) is a time of year when it is popular for priests to be ordained. Many priests are also celebrating the anniversary of their ordination around this time. We congratulate them all, keep them in our prayers and thank them for their service to the Church.

Toys Needed!

05Jul17

We are in desperate need of donations of toys, particularly for children under 5 years old.. Due to the volume of requests for toys that we receive, our toy stock has been depleted. We are having to turn away requests for toys for children in vulnerable families at the moment, until donations of toys are received. So please, if you are having a clear-out this summer, bring your toys to us! The kind of toys that we need are ones that stimulate a child and encourage development. Usually they do not want soft toys, as the children already have soft toys. We only want good quality toys that are clean, without parts missing and in good working order.

You can bring donations to us at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative, 104 Albert Road, Crosshill, Glasgow, G42 8DR. We are open on weekdays from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm. Please phone in advance (0141 433 2680) just to check that we are around.

Many thanks in advance for your help. God bless.


Bishop John Keenan, of Paisley, writes a good summary of recent events:

“24 June BMA votes to back abortions up to birth in the UK. 27 June Amnesty calls for the decriminalisation of Abortion in the UK. 28 June BPAS releases survey suggesting record levels of support for abortion. 30 June Labour MP Stella Creasy forces the abortion issue at the Queen’s Speech and the Conservatives concede to funding for abortions for Irish women travelling to England.
Is it just me or does this look like a wholesale attack on the right to life of the unborn?
All these abortions involve our country in the killing of human beings and surely killing fellow human beings is more a harbinger of the impending collapse of a culture than any marker of a progressive society.”

Please sign this petition to say No to abortion decriminalisation: http://spucscotland.org/petition/
