Clogher Diocese Mothers’ Union is linked with Wellington Diocese. Marjorie was a member of Mothers’ Union in Kent and moved to New Zealand 9 years ago, after the death of her husband, to live with her daughter and son-in-law.
During her visit, Marjorie met the Diocesan President, Dr. Margaret Knox, and the Diocesan Secretary, Diane Whittaker along with other members of the Trustee Body. She was hosted by Laura Rogers in Inishmacsaint Mothers’ Union and Doreen Earls in Garrison, Slavin, Belleek & Kiltyclogher Mothers’ Union. Marjorie attended a Service of Holy Communion in Slavin Church and was entertained to morning tea by the Mothers’ Union ladies. She was welcomed by the Branch Leader Elizabeth Ovens who presented her with a copy of the Clogher Diocesan Mothers’ Union Prayer Book. Marjorie brought greetings from Wellington Diocese and told the congregation that in New Zealand they had just seen the worst drought in 70 years. There was no grass for cattle and there was a 6 week wait for cattle to be slaughtered.
