Friends of the St. Margaret's Children and Family Care Society gathered at Glasgow's cathedral on June 9 to commemorate its years of service and to support the society's adoption agency against the threat of forced closure.
Ronnie Convery, director of communications for the Archdiocese of Glasgow, Scotland, said there was "a mood of celebration" at the annual Mass and reception at St. Andrew's Cathedral.
"Of course this year there is a storm cloud on the horizon, namely the threat from secularists to try to have the agency closed down," Convery told CNA June 11.
"That galvanizes people, they feel bad that the service they have enjoyed from St. Margaret's – and which they know to be professional, caring and supportive – may be threatened."
