Clogher Diocesan Mothers Union
Clogher Diocesan Mothers Union met recently for its Spring Diocesan Council.
The Secretary reported that there were 842 members in 35 branches in the
Diocese, with 4 million members in 81countries worldwide.
The Mothers Union in Clogher Diocese continues to be active, supplying the
Women’s Refuge with overnight bags etc, and knitting cardigans and
hats for the neo-natal unit in the Erne Hospital. Trauma teddies continue
to be a comfort to children attending the Accident & Emergency also in
the Erne Hospital. Members have also sewed baby mattresses for the NNU. For
many years Mothers Union members have knit blankets for those in need and
last year was no exception. Blankets of various sizes and colours were given
to the Tilery and Millcroft Nursing Homes and, for the first time, were also
distributed to Help the aged and Salvation Army.
The theme for 2012 is Real Relationship.
