Guidelines for Events
At the first meeting, we consecrated the group to Jesus through Mary. At every meeting we renew that consecration by saying the consecration prayer and asking Mary to continue to guide and bless our group. Members are encouraged to print and/or memorize the prayer.
It may be a short moment of prayer together at the mall. It might be putting Jesus stickers on pumpkins, talking about how an apple is like the trinity, or it might be an entire party themed around the Rosary. Every meeting must take a moment for God through prayer or activity.
Follow the Teaching of the Catholic Church
We love and accept all Catholic mothers at every stage of their journey! That means that we have opportunities to teach one another about our faith and hold one another accountable. This is a beautiful gift! If there is ever a time that someone is discussing or promoting something that is against Catholic teaching, members are asked to make known to the group - very kindly and with love - what the Catholic Church teaches regarding the topic. Each member has a responsibility to ensure everyone present is educated on the Catholic Church’s teachings. Additionally, members are always encouraged to ask questions about their faith. We are all here to learn and grow in faith together.
When new members join the group, existing members are encouraged to make an effort to be welcoming and inclusive. This may include a brief welcome note when a member joins, a follow-up message after a first meeting, or an exchange of contact information. We are aware that coming to a new group for the first time can be intimidating, so we strive to let new members know they are welcomed and valued.
We have been given an incredible opportunity to share in fellowship with fellow Catholic mothers. We embrace this time to grow in faith and help our children learn about our sweet Lord.
