Christian Mothers

​The objective of the Christian Mothers is to faithfully support the home education of children by truly Christian Mothers. It plans to unite by the observance of its rules and regulations all Christian ladies, married or widowed, single or those married to a Catholic spouse, who are willing to assist one another to attain this noble purpose. Under this special patronage of the “Mother of Sorrows,” the members are encouraged to joyously and hopefully undertake the important task of training and sanctifying the young souls entrusted to their care. They are schooled to edify one another by word and deed, to support one another by fervent prayers and, thus, become the mainstay of spiritual life within their own family, and a faithful source of blessings to the community in which they live.
