“If thou didst know the gift of God, and who he is that saith to thee, give me to drink; thou perhaps would have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water” … “the water that I shall give him shall become for him a fountain of water, springing up into life everlasting” … “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst.” – John 4: 10-14


Christian motherhood demands a complete giving of everything for the physical and spiritual formation of one’s children in the home. No one has unending love and self-abandon within herself. Instead, mothers must be constantly nourished and sustained by the infinite source of living water that only Christ Himself can give.


What is the Confraternity of Christian Mothers?


The Confraternity of Christian Mothers was founded in Lille, France, in 1850, designed to help wives and mothers combat the societal forces undermining family life.  The Confraternity meets once a month for Holy Mass, Confession, Adoration and a spiritual talk under the direction of a parish priest. Under the special patronage of the “Mother of Sorrows” members are encouraged in the important task of training and sanctifying the young souls entrusted to their care.


What are the goals of the Confraternity of Christian Mothers?


The goals of the Confraternity are to receive graces through regular focused access to the powerhouse tools of the Church, to unite in prayer with mothers around the world, and to instruct and inspire mothers in performing their duties and in practicing virtue. It strives to form mothers in the knowledge of the faith, impress on them the importance of motherhood, inflame them with ardent zeal, and show them the way of attaining their own sanctification and that of their families.


Who can join the Confraternity of Christian Mothers?


Any Catholic woman, married or widowed, with or without children, old and young alike. Once enrolled, one is a member for life enjoying its many benefits during life and especially at death. Deceased members and their children are forever recommended to the hearts, prayers and merits of their associates.
