ARCHDIOCESAN NEWS
 
From Archbishop Cushley – Cluster Parishes Reports
His Grace writes…….I have now received nearly all of the reports from the clusters in response to the We Have Found the Messiah consultation process. As you will recall, the deadline for the return of the submissions was Eastertide 2017. Please let your parishioners know that I am very grateful for the work that has gone into the reports already received.  Once I have received and read all of them, depending on their content, I hope to be in a position to discuss them at the deanery level in the autumn and then to present some proposals at the cluster level, involving our parishioners, perhaps by the new year.  By law the process will also involve, in due course, the consultation of the Council of Priests.

Pro-Life News
SPUC Scotland writes…..A growing number of organisations are campaigning for a change in the law to allow “abortion to birth for any reason”. Despite being at odds with most public opinion, that has not deterred the push to ‘decriminalise’ late abortions. Please consider signing the SPUC Petition forms [Notice Board] to oppose this latest threat to life and our Christian culture and traditions.
