DAY FOR LIFE
8th December 2019

DAY OF LIFE

The Parish Pastoral Council have organised a "Day for Life” in St Brigid’s Church beginning at 12 noon on Saturday 7th andending with 12noon mass on Sunday 8th December. It is a time of prayer that our society will respect, protect, love and serve life from the moment of conception until its natural end. The 8th December has been deliberately chosen for this day of prayer as it is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. Everyone in the parish is invited to make a special effort to play a part in this day.

The Innocent victim of abortion, children who die of hunger or from bombings, immigrants who drown in the search for a better tomorrow, the elderly or the sick who are considered a burden, the victims of terrorism, wars, violence and drug trafficking, the environment devastated by man’s predatory relationship with nature: At stake in all of this is the gift of God, of which we are noble stewards but not masters.” Pope Francis
