DAY FOR LIFE 2016

This Sunday, 19th June, is the Bishops’ Conference ‘Day for Life’.  This year, themed on environmental issues, it reflects Francis’ letter ‘Laudato Si’.  There is a close relationship between waste and anti-life mentality.  Famously, ‘God does not create rubbish’, and the Pope asks us to give thanks to God for the wonder of Creation.  Please be generous in your support for the Bioethics Centre (which promotes greater understanding of the ethical issue involved in preserving the gift of life).
