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 308 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.

THEME FOR 2016
A Celebration of Faith
We give you thanks for the far-reaching vision of our founder, Mary Sumner.
We look back with gratitude and praise for her witness,
and for all that has been achieved thus far
in the name of Mothers’ Union worldwide.
Let us Celebrate our Faith and 140 Years of the work of Mothers’ Union.
A Prayer for the people of France
Almighty God, once again we come to you in mourning for the people of France. Their sorrow touches us all. We weep with them.
We lift to you the families of those killed in Nice, the injured and the traumatised.
We pray for the hearts of terrorists, that they may be changed and forgiven.
Comfort and strengthen the people, give courage to those who have to deal with the tragedy, The police, firemen, medical, trauma and bereavement counsellors as they deal with the aftermath of this terror attack.
Lord hear us.
