The Mothers’ Union All Ireland Festival Service took place on Sunday 27th February 2022 in St Patrick’s Cathedral Armagh.

The Mothers’ Union theme for 2022 of “Transformation – Now!” was introduced and a number of people were commissioned to serve in their various roles by Archbishop John McDowell, who was the preacher at what was a very special service of Choral Evensong.

The Dean of Armagh – Very Revd Shane Forster, welcomed everyone to the Cathedral, as for the first time since the onset of the pandemic, a gathering of this size was possible.

Those commissioned were:

Mrs June Butler, for a second term as All Ireland President of the Mothers’ Union.

All Ireland Trustees: Joy Gordon, Hazel Speares, Margaret Jacob, Clare Stewart, Mavis Thompson,
Ada Lawson and Ann Howard. 

Revd Canon Ken Rue as the Mothers’ Union All Ireland Treasurer and Mrs Iris Suitor as the Mothers’ Union Zonal Trustee. We in Armagh Diocese wish Iris Suitor especially, our best wishes and God's blessing.
