Spiritual Communion

Spiritual Communion service created by The Rt Rev Stephen Cottrell, soon to be confirmed as the new Archbishop of York, and adapted for Mothers' Union. We shall be streaming this service led by Zonal Trustee, Kathleen Snow on Thursday 11th June at 9.00pm (BST). This date is significant as it is Corpus Christi, also known as the day of Thanksgiving for Holy Communion.

In times of lockdown we know that many are missing the sacrement of communion and this beautiful service is a way of receiving Communion when you can't get to Church.

Knitted Hearts Pattern

Across the UK and Ireland production of knitted hearts by Mothers' Union is giving hope and spreading love in hospitals, care homes and hospices.

The matching pairs of knitted hearts are given to the patient and their family, so that those receiving support can feel more connected with their relatives, knowing their loved one/family has the other of the pair.

This simple yet meaningful practice is helping residents, patients and their families get through these difficult times.

Mask Strap Pattern (Knitted and Crocheted)

With some hospital and care home staff needing to wear face masks for long periods of time, the elastic loops can become quite uncomfortable and made the backs of ears sore. Mask straps – knitted or crocheted bands with a button each end to hook the elastic ear loops takes the pressure off the back of the ear, while keeping the mask in place.
