 Advantages of Joining

Many powerful graces are available through the prayers and good works performed by members complying with the directives of the Confraternity and the guidance of its Director. We have our Savior’s own words: “If two of you join your voices on earth to pray for anything whatever, it shall be granted you by my Father in heaven.”

Whenever a member prays for herself and her children, all the other members and their children benefit from her efforts. All members of a Confraternity form a pool of spiritual reinforcement. In choosing Mary, the “Mother of Sorrows”, as their Patroness, the mothers ensure the particular protection and powerful intercession of their Heavenly Mother adding a special dimension to their own spiritual resources.


An Invitation to Join

Christian Mothers is open to all women over the age of 18.  We come together for Mass in communion and prayer during our fall and spring seasons.  Our regular meeting follows in Kohler Hall.  We offer support and fellowship for each other and our children with our prayers and assist our parish and community.  New members are installed at our October mass.  Please call with any questions concerning our organization.  We hope you will join us!
