Celebrating Mary Sumner Day

Audience: 
Church Leader, Member

 Mothers Union we are very proud of our founder Mary Sumner and how her vision has shaped our organisation today. We celebrate her life and achievements on 9th August and you will find ideas for activities and worship in the resources attached.

In 2015 we celebrate 100 years since the laying of the foundation stone for Mary Sumner House. In August two Open Days were held at Mary Sumner House during which there was an act of rededication of the House and a reaffirmation of our Mothers’ Union membership.

The worship from these days can be used and adapted for Mary Sumner Day and for other occasions for thanksgiving through the year.

Please help us celebrate the achievements of our remarkable founder by using our new, 2016, Mary Sumner Day resources, which can be found in the downloads section below, entitled A Celebration of Faith - Mary Sumner Day 2016.
