I have often mentioned the Good Counsel Network which is a 100% Catholic, pro-life groups in the UK. They work directly with women who have already decided to have an abortion. Instead of abortion they offer counselling, advice and support (including housing, childcare, regular ongoing financial support, baby goods such as clothes, food, baby milk, prams, toys etc, and in getting their life back on track) in order to help to save the life of their unborn baby.
The value of their work is incalculable: 70% of the women and girls that The Good Counsel Network see choose life for their babies.
I regularly go over to the Good Counsel Network to celebrate Mass or Benediction which they try to have in their centre every day. Yesterday afternoon I was there and heart that Conor Carroll who is 21 and works with The Good Counsel Network is going on the Chartres Pilgrimage this June. Many of you know of this traditional 75 mile pilgrimage which features Mass in the usus antiquior and concludes with solemn Mass at Chartres Cathedral. Conor is trying to gain as much sponsorship as possible in support of the Good Counsel Network. He will also pray for all benefactors each day of the Pilgrimage.
Here is a link where you can sponsor him. Please be as generous as you can:
