16 Days of Activism 2021 (25th November – 10th December)

We come together to focus our prayers for those living with Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and those making a stand for change, as well as improving our understanding of the impact of GBV across society. Domestic abuse and GBV affect people in different ways. By having this focus, we are not forgetting others;

Mothers’ Union is against all forms of violence and abuse.

Our members show such passion and commitment in their work, as they make communities and individuals safer around the world.

Let us not be overcome but through our prayers and actions work together to make our world a place where we people can live to their full potential, without fear, in the knowledge that they are precious, have rights and that they are wonderfully made.

The MU in the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway invite all members of the Province to unite in prayer

beginning with a Zoom gathering of “Thursdays in Black” on Thursday 25th November at 13.00 – 13.15.

We are grateful for our Diocesan Bishop, Kevin Pearson for joining us and for our Diocesan and Provincial Presidents for leading us in prayer.

At 13.00 there will be a short introduction followed by prayers, a keeping of three minutes silence ending with final prayer and blessing.

Please wear a black top and be aware we will record the Zoom to place as a witness on our website and Facebook page.
