Scotland's Pro-Life Stations - Mondays in Lent - Please join us every Monday in Lent for our Pro-Life Stations of the Cross . After the Stations there will be a short reflection blessing from a Priest or Religious in one of the Dioceses of Scotland, we actually have 4 different Diocese represented this year so it’s now a national pro-life event! Every Monday in Lent we’ll gather online to reflect, repent and renew our commitment to “the greatest work on earth” – protecting unborn children and their mothers.  We’ll pray for the strength and encouragement to play our part in building a culture of life where no child is unwanted, no woman unloved and the pressures which lead to abortion no longer exist. Register here:



There will be tea and coffee after today’s 10am Mass. All welcome!
