THE LENTEN WORK AT ST. MARY MAGDALENE CATHOLIC CHURCH, TEDE HELD ON 16TH-17TH MARCH, 2015
The programme started with an opening prayer led by Miss Adetayo Theresa followed by a talk delivered by Rev. Sr. Francis Mary Adigun (OSF) with the theme: SAY NO TO PRE-MARITAL SEX AND ABORTION, and we were told that Pro-Life entails a lot of things including saying ‘NO’ to vices such as Abortion, Artificial Contraceptives, Euthanasia (Mercy Killing), Infanticide which are all Anti-Life.
We also watched a film entitled: ‘PLEASE DO NOT KILL ME’ which shows how abortion is being practised and various methods of aborting pregnancy. After watching the film, many participants asked questions which were answered by the resource person. About 50 youths, 10 adults and 20 children were in attendance.
Also on the 17th of March, we had a rally round Tede town where we walked round the streets with placards and handbills saying ‘Abortion is bad’, ‘Abortion is ungodly’, “SAY NO TO ABORTION”. Handbills were giving to many people and the whole town knew something was happening. The total number of those that participated at the rally was 63. We came back to the Parish and had refreshments before everyone departed to our different homes. Meanwhile, some youths waited behind to be counselled by Sr. Francis Mary Adigun OSF.
The whole programme was enriching and refreshing; all thanks to God and the organisers.
