BISHOP’S PASTORAL LETTER

Bishop Donal McKeown has issued a Pastoral Letter to assist those who are voting in the forthcoming referendum on Abortion in Ireland to make an informed decision based on the deeply held and centuries old belief that life begins at the moment of conception. Though we do not have a vote in this referendum we know many family and friends who do. Please email the Pastoral Letter to them or the link derrydiocese.org so that they can download it for themselves.

We will continue to support the unborn and all expectant mothers and fathers with our prayers.

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will take place every Friday evening in St Columba’s Church Straw from 6.00 pm until 7.25 pm for their intentions. All are welcome.

Copies of Bishop McKeown’s Pastoral Letter are available in all our churches.
