OTHER 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.

Fr John writes…….Do you feel drawn to exploring Christianity in the Catholic tradition, maybe even wondering about becoming a Catholic ?  Well, RCIA [The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults programme] might be for you.  Our Cluster Parishes run RCIA each year for those like you looking for support, guidance and encouragement in following Jesus who calls himself, the Way the Truth and the Life. St Francis Xavier’s, Falkirk hosts these weekly sessions on belief and belonging which run annually from September to June.  Please contact me in the first instance if you’d like to know more.
