Pro-Life

The Pro - Life group in the parish is mainly involved with raising funds to provide material help to clients of Lifeline ( a charity which also gives counselling to those with a problem pregnancy). Many of their clients are referred by Social Services because they are struggling to provide for an unexpected pregnancy. Appreciation is expressed both for the aid (cots, buggies, baby clothes, etc ) and for the knowledge that others care about them.
 
There is a box at the back of the Church for articles which can be sold in the Lifeline Charity shop on Gorgie Road.
 
Fundraising is chiefly through the weekly coffee morning after Mass on Wednesdays, when home - baking and the company of others is enjoyed.
There is an annual sale and raffle during Advent. Toys for children are collected at this time to be distributed among Lifeline's client families in time for Christmas.
 
Once a year the group arranges a 'Remembering Service' for those who have lost a child, from the beginning of pregnancy onwards. this is attended by people from throughout Edinburgh and further afield.
 
If you would like to join or support the group in any way you will be most welcome.
Please contact:  Anne Donnelly or Margaret Knops.
