Welcome

Welcome to the Mothers' Union in Clogher Diocese.

The Diocese of Clogher in the Church of Ireland covers a rural area which extends north and south of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Most of the parishes in the Diocese are small and set in a rural community with the main business towns being Enniskillen in the North and Monaghan in the South.

Despite many past difficulties in the area, the church plays an important role in reconciliation within the community, North and South.

In Clogher Diocese there are just under 1000 MU Members in 35 Branches, most of which are in the Northern part of the diocese.

Our members try to uphold the Aims and Objectives of the Mothers' Union, as they seek to promote Christian family values in a rapidly changing world, with special emphasis on the care and protection of children, and with prayerful support for alll who are in distress or difficulty for wahtever reason. The Faith and Policy Unit run a much-valued and helpful Prayer Chain. We are supporting our local Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Women's Refuge and other Voluntary agencies and we have excellent parenting programmes.

Our Indoor Members are very important to us, and they enjoy the literature they receive, the highlight of their of their year being the Bishop's Tea Party held at the See House.

As a worldwide organisation, we continue to support projects overseas through Education and Training of MU workers, and we have links Wellington Diocese N Zealand), Cape Coast (Ghana),
IleseDiocese (Nigeria). Nearer home wehave a link with the Diocese of Tuam, Killala & Achonry.

As a fellowship of Christians, we are united in prayer, worship and service, offer our friendship, care and unconditional love to many inside the Church family but also in the wider community.
