School’s Out Forever

The UK government has finally published its updated statutory guidance for sex education, relationships and health education. From September 2020 these subjects will become mandatory subject matter to be taught in all registered schools in the UK, be they public, private fee-paying, State-run, independent, religiously affiliated or not.

At secondary school level parents will no longer have the right to withdraw their children from these lessons, which include such things as teaching about contraception and abortion as “choices in relation to pregnancy.”

The new rules, which will come into nationwide force in 18 months time, envisage all pupils to have been taught LGBT+ content “at a timely point” during relationships and sex education.

Concerned parents are preparing to permanently take their children out of school to teach them at home and to make use of private tutors (often retired teachers) to teach subject matter they’re unable to teach themselves. Concerned parents all over the country are saying that homeschooling will now become an absolute necessity rather than a mere option for their children’s education and well-being.

A nationwide survey of Local Education Authorities conducted a year ago found that nearly 50,000 children were already being home-schooled in the UK, a rise of over 40% from three-years previously.

Prayer and Fasting for Life Tomorrow!

 Appeal from the Good Counsel Network

On Saturday 17th November, the Vigil of the Dedication of the Basilica of SS. Peter & Paul, please pray and fast for the end of abortion and euthanasia.

“And the people of Ninevah believed in God; they proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least…God saw their efforts to renounce their evil ways. And God relented about the disaster which He had threatened to bring on them, and He did not bring it.” (Jonah 3:5,10)

Fasting

Fast from all food except bread and water for the day

Or

Fast from a particular food or luxury, e.g. chocolate, alcohol, cigarettes, TV.

Fast from whatever you can given your state of health etc, but make sure it is something that involves a sacrifice to yourself.

Prayer

We are asking people to say a Rosary (or an extra Rosary if you say it daily already).

You could also offer an extra effort such as going to Mass (or an extra Mass) on the day, or going to Adoration. You can even pray before a closed tabernacle if Adoration is not available near you.

 

Abortions down by two-thirds in Russia

Since President Putin became President of Russia in 2000, the number of abortions has dropped by 63.5% and the number of Russians steadfastly opposed to abortion has tripled from 12% to 35%.

There are still a massive 800,000 induced abortions in Russia every year but developing policies of pro-life education and family support aim at making Russia abortion free within the next generation.
