This summer we give thanks to God for the gift of life and for our loving and compassionate families and friends.
We owe our unique role for women within the Church to our founder Mary Sumner. This year we celebrate 145 years of Mothers’ Union and pay tribute to Mary Sumner on the 100th anniversary of her death for all she achieved in life, empowering women and mothers worldwide, and establishing the home as a place of religious education and growth.
Throughout the summer we will be encouraging members and friends to take part in a range of activities.
