Anglican conference comes to life

Anglican Church Conference

THE Mothers’ Union conference of the Anglican Diocese of Manicaland has come alive with hundreds of women coming together to pray for peace as the country heads towards elections in 2023.

The conference started yesterday.

The conference which is being held at St Matthias Tsonzo in Watsomba in Mutasa district ends tomorrow.

Anglican Diocese of Manicaland Bishop Eric Ruwona’s wife Eunice has urged worshipers to pray for peace ahead of the election.

“We are having our annual Mothers’ Union conference after almost two years, as we have been affected by the COVID-19 precautionary measures,” said Eunice, who is the president of the union.

“The main purpose of the meeting is the spiritual awakening and upliftment of the members. We call on the church and the nation to unite because our days are numbered.

“The Mothers’ Union will also be remembered as the day when women exchange ideas on various issues, including marriage. We pray that peace and unity will prevail in the country as the elections approach.

The Anglican Mother’s Union is the backbone of the church and in March this year they successfully organized Saint Mary’s Day where women from all over the country gathered at St Augustine in the province.

Saint Mary’s Day is commemorated annually on March 25 by the Mothers’ Union to celebrate Mary’s bought message from the angel Gabriel that she was to give birth to Jesus.
