Mothers Union Report April 2017


The April meeting of the Mothers’ Union held on Wednesday 12th April was a Lenten Meditation in St Oswald’s Church.

On Saturday 25th March some members of our Branch attended the Diocesan Lady Day Service at Bradford Cathedral. The service was very well attended and was presided upon by The Right Reverend Nicholas Baines, Bishop of Leeds, and the Venerable Peter Townley, Archdeacon of Pontefract and Diocesan Chaplain to the Mothers’ Union, gave the address. During the service the new Diocesan Banner was dedicated by the Bishop.

Our speaker at our meeting on Wednesday 3rd May is Reverend John Richardson.
