St. John's Pro Life group

This weekend our Church is hosting the White Flower Appeal to raise awareness and money for the work of SPUC in the UK. The Pro-Life group will be helping to co-ordinate this and will be available after all Masses this weekend to answer any questions you may have.

Some of you may have seen or heard of Lord Falconer's Commission on Assisted Suicide. The report issued by the commission argues that the current laws on assisted suicide need to be changed (in this country it is still illegal). The report makes very disturbing reading and threatens to undermine the value of the lives of each terminally ill person in this country as well as the excellent work carried out by doctors, nurses and carers in hospitals, hospices and other care facilities. In conjunction with the White Flower Appeal the Pro-Life group will be asking each member of the parish to sign a letter (prepared by themselves) to our local MP, Francis Maude, asking him to vote against any renewed campaigns from pro-assisted suicide groups. You can read more about it on my personal blog here.

The group also have a brand new blog (under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe) which will keep us all up to date with events and general news on Pro-life matters. You can visit it here and join our Facebook group here.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!
