The Cathedral often plays host to groups from around the Diocese. Recently the Society of St Vincent de Paul came for their Annual General Meeting; today it was the turn of the Union of Catholic Mothers (UCM). The UCM is national organisation but works very much at a local level, allowing women to meet together within parishes, to support each other and to strengthen family life by their prayers and their work. Today UCM members from across the Diocese spent the day at the Cathedral, holding their annual meeting, attending Mass and enjoying a lunch prepared by Cathedral parishioners. Apparently a good day was had by all! The national website of the UCM can be found here.
