Mothers' Union - March 2017
The Enrolling Member, Mrs. Joyce Price, paid tribute to a very faithful member- Mrs. Doreen Ellis, who passed away earlier in the week, aged 90. Prayers were said, and a moment's silence observed in her memory. Best wishes were sent to Mrs. Ann Armstrong, who is now home from hospital.
The ' Coffee and Pancake morning was a great success, realizing £191 for M.U.funds, and thanks are due to all who helped in any way, and those who supported this new venture.
The speaker was the Rev. Jon Price, who hails from Cardiganshire, but is now a Pioneer Minister in the Bro Arwystli area. He will be ordained in Bangor on June 24th. He explained that Lent is a time when we are called to reflect on our relationship with God. Giving up something for Lent should bring you closer to God. Sometimes it is hard to hear God's voice amongst the everyday noise of our busy lives. That is why a 'Retreat' or quiet time is so important. It's a chance to recharge spiritual batteries and listen to God.
The vote of thanks was given by Rev. Roland Barnes, and the tea hostesses were Mrs. Sandra Wheeler and Mrs. Joyce Price.
The next meeting is on April 20th.
