UNION OF CATHOLIC MOTHERS - SELSDON FOUNDATION

OUR FIRST UCM MEETING IN 2022 WILL BE VIA ZOOM!

If you wish to join in a New Year Quiz with UCM members, it’s open to all parishioners – just get in touch with Gill Tomei by email – g.tomei@btopenworld.com and she will send you the zoom link to join the Quiz on January 5th at 7:30pm.  Obtain the link at least the day before.  No charge, just come and have some fun!  Hopefully we will return to normal meetings in  the church hall for 2nd February.

The UCM has been active at St. Columba’s since 1978 and still has four of the original founding members who started at that time.

As time has gone on the UCM along with many other groups have been losing membership numbers over the years. National UCM have been having discussions over the future of the UCM and have decided that it will remain a church group as long as it is required.  We do have to try and gain more members and a way to do that is to inform you that the UCM is a group of ladies who meet monthly whether they are married, single or widows, whether they are married to catholic men and not themselves catholic and also from any religion, they will be welcomed with open arms.  We look forward to meeting you, so come along to any of our meetings in the church hall, the first Wednesday evening of the month, with Benediction in the church at 7:30pm followed by a very interesting meeting.

A UCM Mass will re-commence at 10am on the first Sunday of every month, starting in October 2021.

New members are very welcome so do come along any evening to our meeting.  Watch out for the advert in the newsletter.  We will re-commence in September with our first meeting in the hall on Wednesday, 1st September 2021 at 8:00pm, starting with Benediction in the church at 7:30pm.
