Welcome to Derry and
Raphoe Mothers’ Union
Our Mission Statement
For 130 years members of the Mothers’ Union have been making a difference in families. The Mothers’ Union is a Christian organisation, which promotes the well-being of families worldwide. We achieve this by developing prayer and spiritual growth in families. Studying and reflecting on family life and marriage and its place in society. Encouraging our members to take practical action to improve conditions for families, both nationally and in the communities in which they live.
A Message from Diocesan President – Jacqui Armstrong
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new everymorning; great is your faithfulness.
These are the words which come to mind today. During pandemic times, yes, there have been times of despair, but we have seen much goodness, hope and confidence appear and reappear in recent months.
No matter what happens the day before we wake up each morning with a new heart.
Thank you, Mothers’ Union members, clergy, laity and friends …..

What We Do
The goal of the Mothers’ Union is to be specifically committed to strengthening and preserving family life and marriage, by our Christian faith through practical action. This practical action can be seen through the giving of self, in prayer, in voluntary work, and in helping those less fortunate than ourselves in whatever ways we can.
Mothers’ Union Prayer
Loving Lord, we thank you for your love so freely given to us all. We pray for families around the world. Bless the work of the Mothers’ Union as we seek to share your love through the encouragement, strengthening and support of marriage and family live. Empowered by your Spirit, may we be united in prayer and worship, and in love and service reach out as your hands across the world. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
