Special Mothers' Union service for White Ribbon Day


On White Ribbon Day (November 25) there will be a ‘Light a Candle’ service in St David's Cathedral at 12 noon organised by the St Davids Diocese Mothers' Union.
White Ribbon Day is the International Day for the Eradication of Violence against Women which is part of a global campaign to raise awareness of the need to combat violence against women and girls.
In support of this initiative, the national Mothers' Union is undertaking 16 days of activism to highlight the issue.
Brenda Evans, president of the St Davids Mothers' Union, said “Around 30% of women across the world experience violence, regardless of class, race, religion or age and in Wales figures show that some 150,000 women will suffer some form of gender-based violence often in a domestic setting.”
The ‘Light a Candle’ service is the action of the St Davids Diocese Mothers’ Union in supporting the campaign.
It builds on the diocese’s support for the Not in My Name campaign initiated by Joyce Watson AM and the National Federation of the Women’s Institute.
This service is open to everyone and all are welcome to attend.
The MU builds its work on God’s command: to love our neighbour as ourselves.

Thank you so much for your support. We do look forward to people coming to the service and joining with us as we take a stand against gender-based violence.
The service is actually the initiative of the National Federation of Women's Institutes in Wales, and Mothers' Union are joining forces with them to raise awareness of gender-based violence.
