Mothers of the Church

"The battleground is in the mind. We are going to have to equip young people to protect their minds early and also to give adults the tools to recover their minds." 

What is Mothers of the Church?

Mothers of the Church is a new group promoting the importance and contribution of women within society and within the Catholic Church. The program introduces a role for women of all backgrounds and vocations, single, married, or within religious life. The Mothers of the Church initiative seeks to equip women with confidence in their ability to offer maternity in their home, yes, and also in their communities and parishes. This course gives participants an opportunity to advance and explore both their personal development and faith.

Our Mission

The aim of Mothers of the Church is to highlight the importance and contribution of women within society and the Catholic Church. This initiative is designed to equip women with the confidence to offer their maternity in their home, communities, and parishes.

"Mothers of the Church is contemporary, balanced and thought-provoking-I love it! Every time I log in to the online course and watch one of the talks, I learn something new. This course has helped me grow in my faith...I feel more relaxed and happy in my relationships."
