2017 was a wonderful year of Celebration for Mothers’ Union in Ireland. We have so much to give thanks to God for as we travelled through this wonderful year. In this Diocese "130 years of Love and Service" has been celebrated in many ways, Prayer Walks, Afternoon Tea Parties, Festival Service, Tree Planting Ceremony, 130th Birthday Party and individual Branches hosting events in different parts of the United Diocese, the photographs which have been inserted in Comun tell the story of many of these special days.
Just some of the highlights – The M U Way - All-Ireland President, Phyllis Grothier visited all twelve Dioceses during May. Accompanied by Mrs. Lynne Tembey, World-wide President, she visited Cashel Ferns and Ossory for a Prayer Service in St. Laserian’s Cathedral followed by a Tree planting ceremony in the grounds of the Cathedral. CFO MU now own a spade!!! The Festival Service in May on the Feast of the Visitation in St. Canice’s Cathedral, Kilkenny at which seven new members of the Trustee Board were commissioned by Bishop Michael. The Big Sing in the National Concert Hall, Dublin, in September was a wonderful occasion and enjoyed by all who attended.
Autumn/Winter activities have begun in many Branches throughout the Diocese. I wish you God’s blessing on all that you have planned for the coming months.
Thirteen decades of M.U. outreach and witness has been celebrated, as we go forward we give thanks to God for all his blessings and as Mary Sumner herself prayed let us be those who hear God’s call to touch as many lives as possible through our words and actions not only in our Parishes but the wider community as well.

which aims to look at Mothers' Union going forward.
You will be hearing a lot about it at Branch Level in the coming months.
PRAYER FOR MULOA
We pray that our God will make us fit for what he’s called us to be,
that he’ll fill our good ideas and acts of faith with his own energy
so that it all amounts to something.
As our lives honour the name of Jesus,
may he honour us, by his grace; our God giving himself freely,
the Master, Jesus Christ, giving himself freely.Amen
Based on 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 (The Message)
