Join Derry and Raphoe Mothers’ Union
Membership of the Mothers’ Union is open to all those who have been baptised in the name of the Holy Trinity and declare their support for the Aim and Objectives of the Mothers’ Union. This can be as a Branch, Diocesan or Indoor Member.
To become a branch member enquire at your local Church as to where the nearest Mothers’ Union branch might be.
Diocesan membership of the Mothers’ Union is designed and open for anyone (male or female) who has been baptised in the name of the Holy Trinity and who agrees with the Aims and Objectives. Usually a person wishes to become a Diocesan member because they are not attached to a Branch but nevertheless wish to be active attending services and meetings and supporting the various projects within the Diocese and worldwide. Admission to membership may either be by enrollment, which can be arranged and/or by the signing of a declaration. Diocesan members are entitled to attend Diocesan Council and have a right to vote.
These are members who, perhaps through age and infirmity or disability, are no longer able to attend meetings of the branches. They remain an important part of the Mothers’ Union to be cared for both by their own branches. Every summer the Indoor Members come together to meet each other and the Dicoesan Trustee committee at a tea-party. The transport for this outing is arranged by the branches.
