FOCUS is an annual All-Ireland publication. It comes free to members and is funded by a grant from Mums in May. The latest edition is now available to download by clicking on the image of the cover.

FOCUS features All-Ireland news and each Diocese submits an article promoting what is happening in Mothers' Union in their area. Future editions also hope to feature an article from each of the All-Ireland Unit Co-Ordinators detailing news of what is happening in each Unit.

The current editor of FOCUS is the All-Ireland Unit Co-ordinator for Fund Raising and Communication, Margaret Jacob.


Mothers’ Union’s new membership magazine Connected  came out at the beginning of April, just after Easter 2021. The driving  force behind the new publication was a need to keep members in Britain  and Ireland ‘connected’ by ensuring they were informed and up-to-date on  the wider movement.

Part of the production process involved gathering thoughts and  opinions from a number of members which we did using focus groups over  zoom. The meetings were fruitful and gave us a good idea of what was  required between the pages. This included a mix of news about our work  worldwide and in the UK and Ireland, faith-based articles, news about  policy and advocacy, info on upcoming events, appeals and fundraising.
