Mothers’ Union lauded for ministering work with families


Share post:

THE BARBADOS Mothers Union has been commended for its continued work in assisting families across Barbados.

It came from Anglican Bishop of Barbados and Archbishop of the West Indies, Dr John Holder, as he commissioned a new 16-member executive committee during a church service at St Michael’s Cathedral on Tuesday night.

He said the Mothers Union had a programme in which they catered not only to mothers, but the family in general, giving them some guidance in life.

“In some other parishes, where  members of the Mothers Union are, there is a concern for family and motherhood and they would work to ensure that they offer whatever they can for the mothers that are there,” he said.

The bishop added that the Anglican Church was also making its own strides to complement the work being done.

As an example, he noted that in the St Ambrose parish, they recently conducted a course for young mothers, giving them the tools needed to train their children as well.
