Mothers’ Union

Mothers’ Union Report March 2021

We were very proud to celebrate our centenary in 2008 and as a part of our celebrations we organised a Festival of Flowers on the theme “Through the Century”.

In Puxley Chapel there is a window to commemorate Mrs Catherine Lavellin Puxley, Llethr Llestri, who founded Mothers’ Union in Llanddarog in 1908.  The Puxley family came from Dunboy Castle in Cork, and were the local landowners, and only they sat in the chapel.  The figure in the window is a portrait of Mrs Puxley at 18 years of age and depicts St. Catherine holding a wheel.

As part of our celebrations we had a service of thanksgiving, as we are so indebted to those people who laid those foundation stones so firmly that we can enjoy all the benefits of the Mothers’ Union movement.  We urged all members as part of our celebrations to seek new members and this they certainly did.

At present we have 30 faithful members and, dependent on Covid regulations in Wales, we meet on the second Thursday of every month in Church or via Zoom.  We have a varied programme of speakers, visits, quiet evenings, special services and fellowship events, something to suit everyone.  We are pleased to accept new members and if interested please contact Mrs Jean Voyle Williams on 01267 275222.
