Mothering Sunday

“MOTHERING SUNDAY”, the more popular name for this fourth Sunday of Lent, pulls together several strands of tradition and time. Originally the day that local Churches would come together to the ‘Mother Church’ in Lenten pilgrimage (similar to the idea of the ‘Lenten Station Mass’), it developed into a day when children in service would take the opportunity to visit their own mothers at home. In most years, though not this one, it also falls conveniently close to the feast of the Annunciation to Mary that she is to be the Mother of Jesus.

A Happy Feast Day to all Mothers!
