Families worldwide

Families Worldwide is the Mothers’ Union members’ resource and includes a daily prayer diary, Wave of Prayer and, over each year, individual profiles of the work of Mothers' Union in more than 80 countries.

Each issue includes a wealth of up-to-date, grassroots information about the work being carried out by members to encourage family life and faith around the world.

Families Worldwide is distributed free to members in the UK & Ireland and to 700 Mothers' Union diocesan presidents and community development coordinators around the world. 

Published twice a year, Families Worldwide is distributed to diocesan offices three months before the prayer diary starts. This allows for local distribution through the dioceses.

For many of our members not able to get about to local group meetings or participate in fundraising activities, Families Worldwide is a reminder of the most important thing of all – prayer. With the prayer diary, anyone who wants to support Mothers’ Union is involved in a community of powerful united prayer on a daily basis.
