Following a report from the Care Quality Commission, which revealed very dangerous and illegal practices at Marie Stopes International abortion clinics, Life and SPUC have launched a joint petition to have the company stripped of its licence to perform abortions in the UK.  Copies of the petition, and of the reasoning behind it, are available at the back of church.

May is a month of devotion to Our Blessed Lady.  Since the whole of the month falls within the Easter season, we shall sing the Marian Easter Anthem, the Regina Caeli, at the end of every Mass.  If you are unsure of the words, they can be found in the hymn book, number 616.
