Church holds service for 50th anniversary of abortion, dedicated to Life

St Mary of the Angels Catholic Church, Aldridge, held a service and a collection for the work of Life this October, in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Abortion Act receiving Royal Assent in October 1967.

The service of hymns, readings, the rosary, and prayers was dedicated to the work of Life, for all unborn babies and for their mothers. The church also held a collection and raised nearly £270 to support the work of Walsall Life group, a part of Life Link One.

The church has always been very supportive of Life’s work and the wider prolife cause. They recently unveiled and blessed a beautiful garden (above), which is intended as a quiet space for everyone to pray for the prolife cause.

The day also saw the launch of our Baby Loss Memorial in the church, which you can see below with (l-r) James Tranter, Link One Life Matters® Officer; Ann Terry, Chair of Walsall Life; and Liz Lloyd, Pregnancy Matters™ Online Services Manager.


Thank you to St Mary of the Angels for your dedicated support!

  1. Well done to St Mary of the Angels parishioners and community,your statue of Our Lady is beautiful and I commend your idea of a place for prayer in remembrance for babies aborted since 1967.
    This location will be a place of healing and recovery and give much solace and comfort.
    Here on the Isle of Man we hope one day to have something similar at any of our seven R.C parishes.
    LIFE[IOM} members will include you all in our prayers during SILENCE 67.
