Mothers’ Union Festival Services of Thanksgiving
This May, Mothers’ Union Groups from across the Diocese gathered for two Festival Services of Thanksgiving. The first service took place on the 9th May in the Cathedral Church of St Mary, the Virgin and St John the Baptist, Sligo. The second service took place on the 23rd May in St Patrick’s Church Ballintemple. The theme of both services was ‘Transformation – Now!’ with the reminder that with God nothing is impossible. Dean Arfon Williams preached at the first service from 2 Corinthians 4:5-7 and 15 and Linda Abwa from CMS Ireland preached at the second service from Galatians vs 1-6 vs 1-10. The services of thankgiving were a wonderful opportunity to gather together as a family to recommit ourselves to a vision of transformation in our own lives, in the MU and the world – transformation made possible by God’s mercy through our faith in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
