SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

Confraternity of Christian Mothers

Announcing the “Reawakening” of a Special Group for Mothers!

“Mothers rule the world. 
They guide the destinies of homes;
that is why God is relying on Mothers
to keep Christ in the world
by keeping Him in their hearts and homes.”

We found a wonderful treasure in early July!  It was accidently discovered that the Confraternity of Christian Mothers was officially established here at the Church of St. John the Baptist on May 13, 1961.  

This wonderful group, with over two thousand Chapters worldwide, was founded to assist all Mothers as they unite their own hearts to Christ so as to help draw their families closer to the Lord.     Although many years have passed since the original affiliation, our Charter remains active, and this great group for Mothers will once again become a big part of the life of our Parish, under the guidance of our Pastor, Fr. Brian Woodrow (who is now the Father Director of the St. John the Baptist Chapter).     


PLEASE JOIN US FOR OUR NEXT MEETING!
