Mothering Sunday

Just as a gentle reminder, Mother’s Day is this Sunday!

Why is it called  Mothering Sunday?

Most Sundays in the year churchgoers would worship at their nearest church or “daughter church”.

In olden times it was considered important for people to return to their home or “mother” church at least once a year. So each year in the middle of Lent, everyone would visit their “mother” church.

The return to the “mother” church became an occasion for family reunions when children who were working away from home returned. (It was quite common in those days for children to leave home to work in service from ten years of age.)

The majority of historians think that it was this return to the “Mother” church which led to the tradition of children, particularly those working as domestic servants, or as apprentices, being given the day off to visit their mother and family.

This special day has now become a time when people give thanks to their mothers and offers an opportunity to express both love and thanks for the work that they do.

What special thing will you be doing for your Mum on Mother’s day?
