The retiring collection this weekend will be for Day for Life which this year focuses on the wonder of the gift of human life and the gift of our common home which is God’s creation. It provides an opportunity for people to think about the relationship between us and the earth we inhabit. As Pope Francis said in ‘Laudati Si’ there is a real need to rediscover a spirit of wonder and awe at the gift of human life so that all life may be properly respected and a new heart created for the home in which we live. Please pray for the protection of human life from conception to its natural end. Further information from www.dayforlife.org. Day for Life Prayer Cards are available in the Church Porch’s. Please take one home.
