Union of Catholic Mothers
We meet on Wednesdays at 7.30 pm in the church hall.
Catholic women join The Union of Catholic Mothers for a variety of reasons, as meetings provide fellowship and friendship and are a blend of social and spiritual activities.
The UCM meeting, literature and contacts provide ongoing fresh interests. There are opportunities for varied and valuable Catholic action but nothing should be undertaken at the expense of personal family life.
Through unity with other members, many thousands strong, greater influence can be exerted on public affairs that affect marriage and family life. United in prayer, members never face life’s difficulties alone but are strengthened by the support of fellow members.
‘The family which lives love even though imperfectly, and opens itself generously to the rest of society, is the primary agent of a future of peace. A civilisation of peace is not possible if love is lacking’.
Pope John Paul II
The UCM is ‘family’.
