Lord Mayor welcomes Portadown Mothers Union

67

Lord Mayor, Alderman Gareth Wilson has hosted the members of St. Mark’s Portadown Mothers’ Union. 

Members of the group had a tour of the Palace building, the historic church and enjoyed afternoon tea. 

Alderman Wilson stated, “Mothers’ Union groups across the Province contribute so richly to society and provide an important function in allowing ladies to meet together for fellowship and also take forward charitable and community work, all with a firm focus on faith.” 

He added, “The Mothers Union at St Mark’s is one such group that very clearly puts so much time and effort in providing this important resource for local ladies. They are always on the lookout for new members to join them and they operate to promote the value to society of stable family units, the importance of marriage and encouraging parents to develop the faith of their children.” 

He concluded, “In my tenure so far it has been so beneficial and interesting to meet with groups promoting Christian faith in the public square and I wish St. Mark’s Mothers’ Union well in the year ahead as they plan events and meet together each month.”
