The Diocese covers a large geographical area, taking in Counties Cavan, Longford, Leitrim, most of County Roscommon and much of County Sligo in the Republic and some parishes in County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland.
Mothers' Union has 324 members in 18 branches across the Diocese. Whilst membership in some of our branches is quite small, we must never forget that we are part of a worldwide Christian organisation with over 3 million members throughout the world, and that we are united with them in prayer and worship. We share the same Aims and Objectives as we work to support marriage and Christian family life, and to help those who have not been so fortunate in life.
Our diocesan link is with the Diocese of Cork, Cloyne and Ross.
Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you find it interesting and informative - please read on to find out more about what we get up to here in Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh and perhaps you will want to join in what we do.
2019 is a year of new beginnings for Mothers’ Union, with the start of the next triennium, many new officers appointed at all levels of service and updated constitution and structures. It is also the year which sees the coming together of our global conversations to prayerfully inform our way forward as a movement. As we gain clarity about our God-given purpose and direction in both local and global context we will be energised and inspired for what lies ahead. As the future unfolds we will continue to listen and observe in order to act with insight and integrity; neither running ahead nor lagging behind, but always in step with God.
The piece of stained glass which was dedicated by Archbishop Jackson in Christ church Cathedral, Dublin. The central image of the piece is a tree with 13 Branches representing 13 decades of MU in Ireland and completes the project when trees were planted in all twelve dioceses. We planted trees in order to acknowledge Mothers’ Union rooted in prayer and faith and reaching out to our communities through our Branches and members.
