Briefing. The Leeds agency is now the only English one pursuing this route.
From The Tablet: A CATHOLIC adoption agency in Leeds has decided to pursue its case with the Charity Tribunal next week. Catholic Care says it has been forced by the Charity Commission to
return to the tribunal, despite an initial hearing that found in its favour.
“We are doing this as a matter of principle, in spite of the high cost,” said Mark Wiggin, director of Catholic Care. The charity is resisting legislation obliging it to consider homosexual couples as adoptive parents.
Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael
Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
