Parenting

The intergenerational care of children is one of the victims of modern life. It is too often the poor, the marginalized, those who have been in prison, who have had little opportunity to learn parenting skills or even have had good parenting themselves. Let us pray for guidance in our vocation of promoting parenting. May God raise up in Mothers Union those who are able to guide and strengthen needy parents.

Show yourself in all respects a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity and sound speech. Titus 2: 7-8a

Doing the cooking for a monthly meal is a Mothers Union member in Morant Bay. The less fortunate and homeless are fed with donations from branch members and funds from a thrift shop. This is one of the programs in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands where members offer family support to the sick. By counselling young mothers and young church-goers, members are taking on parenting roles.
