Mothers' Day

On this Mothers' Day, we recognise the love and care that mothers, grandmothers and carers give to the children in their lives. We thank them for all they do and wish them all a very happy and peaceful Mothers' Day. 

A Prayer for Mothers

O Loving Lord,

You have created mothers in love 

and blessed them with children.

As they work tirelessly to support their families 

may they be showered with your blessings.

Give mothers strength to exercise compassion 

as they live each day under your care.

May those who are joined in your love, 

support mothers by their fervour of spirit

 and devotion to prayer.


We thank you, O Lord, 

for the gift of Motherhood.

May those blessed with children 

be granted the gifts of courage, 

perseverance and good health.

May they face each new day with faith 

and hope in your abiding love.

May all families find in the strength of your love

the priceless gift of peace

And so bear witness to your glory.


As Mary was the model of prayer, of love, 

and of obedience to the will of God, 

by your grace make mothers holy 

and rich with your gifts.

Bind families together in the bonds

of peace and safety

so that mothers will feel nurtured by love.

May all mothers enjoy good health

and spiritual well being

to enable them to care for their families.




Happy Mothers' Day! May God bless all the mothers, grandmothers and the other special ladies in the lives of our children.
