Connor Mothers’ Union (MU) held its annual Festival Service in Belfast Cathedral on Sunday March 20.
For the first time in more than two years, the banners of the different branches within Connor Diocese were paraded at the service as in-person festival services were suspended due to Covid-19.
The service was attended by the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, and the Archdeacon of Connor and Chaplain of Connor Mothers’ Union, the Ven Dr Stephen McBride. The preacher was the Rev Canon Robert Deane, All Ireland MU Chaplain.
Among the guests were All-Ireland MU President June Butler, and Mavis Thompson, Diocesan President of the MU in Down and Dromore.
