“Blessed is the person who sees the need, recognises the responsibility, and actively becomes the answer” (William Arthur Ward). That best explains how Mothers’ Union operates – working through our local membership with community-based projects; we reach out to meet the spiritual and practical needs of families.
Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Rochester welcomes all men and women to join whether single or married. We include the choice to have individual membership or join with local branches.
