Union of Catholic Mothers
Who we are
We are a National Organisation of Catholic Women, open to all women of all ages who support our aims and objectives in ...'prayer, love and active witness to marriage, family and Christian life in the world' (from our membership prayer)
What we do
Throughout our 100 year history we have been involved in current affairs, particularly those that impact on family life, lobbying our MPs and MEPs to protect the marginalised and vulnerable in society both home and abroad. We are affiliated to other like-minded organisations, who are active in our parishes and support each other in love and prayer.

Social and Welfare group
This group was established in the 70's or 80's to bring together the more senior citizens of the parish. They organise an annual party on a Saturday near to St Patrick's day (March 17th). Sometimes a Mass for the sick is held on a Saturday in the autumn. The group acknowledge the great help given by the Junior School who organise a summer lunch and a pre Christmas meal for senior citizens. Both occasions are hugely enjoyable.
