Mothers Union celebrates its 140th birthday in 2016. MU has a long and strong history in the parish, with a number of our members having received 50 and 60-year service pins. Mothers Union was established by Mary Sumner, the wife of Bishop Sumner in England. The purpose of Mothers Union is to provide support for Marriage and Family Life, and they meet monthly throughout the year, and include in their activities visiting the residents of Glenview Aged Care (Indigo North Health) and hosting a meal annually for those who are alone. The MU meets at St Stephens Hall on the 2nd Thursday each month following the 9:00am Eucharist. The President of Rutherglen MU is Mrs Irene Hay. New members are always welcome.
