MOTHERS’ UNION

Mothers’ Union at St Mary, Prescot restarted on 13 September following our summer break. Over 30 members met together for a Holy Communion Service led by Vicar John, and the preacher was Rev Jeff, Chaplain Emeritus. Following the service we had supper in the meeting room, the scones were provided by Barbara Hotchkiss and were delicious.
Looking ahead, our first meeting in October, which is the 11th, will be held in church due the hall being closed for re-decoration. At this meeting we are to have a talk from Sophie and Alan on the work of the Samaritans.
We welcome visitors if you would find this talk interesting.

A PRAYER FOR MOTHERING SUNDAY
Taken from Thoughts About God.com

Gracious God, we thank you for adopting us into your family through the miracle of your Grace, and for calling us to be brothers and sisters to each other. Today, loving God, we pray for our mothers:
• Who cared for us when we were helpless
• Who comforted us when we were hurt
• Whose love and care, we often took for granted
Today we pray for:
• Those who are grieving the loss of their mother
• Those who never knew their biological mother, and now yearn for her
• Those who have experienced the wonder of an adopted mothers’ love
• The families separated by war or conflict
• Lord, give them special blessings
Keep us united with you and with each other, so that we can be and become all that we are meant to be. Amen

National Marriage week – 7-14 February

On Wednesday 11 January we had, as our guest speaker, Mr Norman Lea who entertained us with an evening of poetry. All the poems had been written by Norman and many covered different aspects of his life from his childhood to the present day. They were written with humour and much laughter ensured from members as each poem was read out reminding many of us what it was like to live in the ‘good old days’!!
Our only meeting in February is on Wednesday 8th when we will have our Annual General Meeting which will be followed by supper.

‘MAKE A MOTHER’S DAY’

Make a Mother’s Day goes from strength to strength in establishing Mothering Sunday as Mothers’ Union’s flagship day.

Fiona Thomas, Communications Manager, is encouraged at the growth of ‘Make a Mother’s Day’.

In 2006 the then Chief Executive of Mothers’ Union, Reg Bailey, came to the Marketing Team (as we were then called) to seek ideas on how Mothers’ Union could become more visible in the Anglican Church. The brainchild of Vikki White, then Head of Marketing, was to ‘Make a Mother’s Day’, an initiative that would raise both funds and awareness for Mothers’ Union as churches celebrated Mothering Sunday across the UK and Ireland.
2007 saw the first Make A Mother’s Day launch – an ethical gift catalogue with cards for mum, grandmother, or anyone really, to receive a Mothering Sunday card knowing that the family had also given to a cause dear to their heart – Mothers’ Union. The gifts then, as now, covered a broad price-range from a £5 mosquito net to £100 to support a community trainer.
Having lost my mum to cancer, I was aware as I was drafting copy, that many people find Mothering Sunday extremely difficult. So the idea of an “in memory card” was born. Over the years this simple ministry has not only brought comfort to many hundreds of families, but has also raised additional funds for the charity.
That first year we were aiming to raise £30,000, so you can imagine our excitement when it raised over £50,000! It was so satisfying to see the way members had taken the initiative to their hearts and publicised the campaign so widely.
This year will mark the tenth time we – you the member – have raised valuable funds for Mothers’ Union by promoting our Make a Mother’s Day ethical giving. Not only do the gifts and cards raise vital funds for the work, but the provision of resources to churches for services and children’s ministry enable a wider understanding of the work of Mothers’ Union. To date thousands of lives have been transformed – so the message is that this is a mothering Sunday gift which truly makes a difference. Since its inception over £1million has been raised through this campaign – a staggering result. Yet even more staggering is the thousands of lives it has not only touched but outright changed for the better.
And yet we know that more can be done. There are people in churches who have not yet heard of Make a Mother’s Day. Mums who haven’t yet had one of the beautiful cards designed uniquely for Mothers’ Union. We need your help to make this, our 10th MAMD in our 140th year, one which really gives us cause to celebrate and enables our membership to put their faith into action wherever there are families in need. Whether it is £6 to help a person to take part in a Bible-study course, or £100 to help us establish a self-help group in the church. This year’s catalogue and resources are a great way to promote Mothers’ Union right at the parish level.
Help us reach our target of £185,000 this year – our 140th anniversary – by making a mother’s day.

Visit: http://www.makeamothersday.org for online ordering
or downloadable resources.

Church to get involved? Ring 020 7222 5533 to order more copies.
