HELPERS walsingham retreat 2021
As you can see by the photos, some Helpers of God’s Precious Infants enjoyed a lovely Retreat in Walsingham at the end of May. Fr Jeremy Davies gave the Helpers two interesting talks : one of them was on Edith Stein and he compared how this saint became a spiritual mother to the people in Auschwitz, like we become spiritual mothers to the babies in their mother’s wombs. We were blessed with warm, sunny weather throughout the Retreat, whilst we walked the Holy Mile praying the Rosary, visited the Priory grounds, had several picnics and dipped our feet in the sea at nearby Cley.
Easter 2021 Newsletter
As I write, we are now deep into the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, making it much more difficult to carry on and carry out the mission that God has given to the Helpers, namely ministering to young women in need and their precious infants. I know that many of you are struggling with the restrictions placed on you. Some Helpers groups are having difficulties with local law enforcement, as some localities will not allow the Helpers to approach anyone or in some cases allow any presence at all. I know that many of you were disappointed with the outcome of the election in the United States of November of 2020, as President Donald Trump, who had done so much to move this country in a pro-life direction was defeated ...
Great News from Streatham
Closing Down of a London Abortion Centre 2021
Some good news from Streatham. The abortion centre on Leigham Court Road is now closed down permanently. It has been closed for several weeks now and there is a for sale sign outside. The associated website has also been removed. You may be aware that this particular centre was particularly busy on Sundays, opening from 8am – 6pm every Sunday. The vigils at this place have been held for the best part of 25 years - long before our group came into existence. This would be a fitting time to pray for all those who have kept vigil at this place over the years - offering prayer as well as moral and spiritual support to mothers and fathers and families caught up in the great evil ..

September 2020 Newsletter
Usually, when someone says: “I was born for this,” they are speaking of some extraordinary or amazing moment, when they feel more alive, more loved, more appreciated than they may feel at other times in their lives. The fact is that that truth is contained within each moment. Each moment is sacred to each one of us -hoovering the carpet, washing the dishes, cleaning the toilet, waiting in traffic, sitting
in the dentist’s chair - you were born for this. Each moment has never been done before, and is never going to be done again. There is an essential link between each moment and the one that preceded it and the one that follows it. Most importantly love can only happen in this moment ......

What is the Latest on Alina's Appeal
LONDON (4th November 2020) A single mother who was given help to continue her pregnancy by a now-banned charitable service has filed a case at the European Court of Human Rights. A successful challenge could set a precedent for 820 million Europeans across the continent, and make a clear statement about the compatibility of “prayer bans” and censorship zones with human rights law.
Alina Dulgheriu, who felt “alone” and “abandoned” after being left by her partner in a crisis pregnancy thought abortion was her only choice. Moments before her appointment, she was offered the financial, emotional and material support that she needed to continue her pregnancy.
