MU USA is part of the worldwide Mothers’ Union, an international Christian organisation that seeks to support families worldwide.
All our work is underpinned by the Christian faith of members in Parish-based Branches, or State Chapters.
Mothers’ Union’s aim is to be transformational. Our worldwide fellowship of over four million members brings Christian care to families of all kinds
It is with great pride and joy that I introduce to all, the new official Mothers Union website. This new website is being launched to serve members and non-members alike to gain knowledge of who we are and to spread the word of what we do. It is our hope that this new website for the Mothers' Union in the Province of the United States of America will serve the purpose for which it was created.
It is no coincidence that our website is being launched in 2016, the One Hundred and Fortieth anniversary of the founding of the Mothers Union. MU USA is a part of this worldwide organization which was started in 1876, in old Alresford England by Mary Elizabeth Sumner. She was the wife of the Bishop of Winchester Cathedral at that time.
The province of the United States of America was inaugurated into the Worldwide Union on November 15, 2003, under the worldwide leadership of Patricia Haywood and Bishop John Bryson Chane and has been growing since. At that time, John Bryson Chane was the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, DC. A full history of the province will be provided in the website.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sister Judith Davies, Chairperson of the website committee and her team for making this possible.
