Confraternity of Christian Mothers   arrow

BlessedVirginMaryBabyJesusThe goal of the Confraternity of Christian Mothers is not simply to unite women in prayer, but also to support, guide and inspire them in performing their duties and in practicing virtue.

By Catholic instruction at regular meetings, it strives to encourage and impress on them the importance of the woman’s role in the Church and to inflame them with ardent zeal for the Faith. Its aim is to show them the way of attaining their own sanctification and that of their families and to induce them to bring up their children as useful members of society, ensuring their temporal and especially their eternal welfare.

It is also wonderful to visit with other women who are going through the same kinds of trials and hardships in life and to build a community to support one another.

Any Catholic woman, married or widow, with or without children, old and young alike, may be admitted. Once enrolled, you are a member for life, enjoying its many benefits during life and especially at death. The deceased members and their children are forever recommended to the hearts, prayers and merits of their associates. One of the special advantages in membership is the actual presence of our divine Lord with His graces: “Where two or more are gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them.” There are also many indulgences attached to membership of this Confraternity, as the Church has given the Confraternity special privileges.

Mothers rule the world. They guide the destinies of the home and children and have great influence on a community. A mother’s influence is felt for all time and eternity. The world will never be better until mothers get closer to Jesus and Mary in their homes. God is relying on mothers to step up and keep Christ alive in the world by keeping Him alive in our hearts and homes. Through Mother Mary and her Confraternity, we can accomplish this? Are you ready to accept this challenge?

The Confraternity of Christian Mothers meets every 1st Saturday at 8:30 for Mass and 9:00 for a meeting.

There is no obligation to attend every meeting. We are very aware that women are busy and can come when it works out.
