The Catholic Motherhood group at The Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul meets the second Tuesday of each month in the Varallo Parish Hall. The meetings are from 10:00-11:30a.m.
The purpose of the group is to encourage mothers of all ages in our vocation of Motherhood while strengthening our knowledge and love of our Catholic faith. We welcome all mothers to our group, regardless of age or number of children. We meet at the church to discuss various Catholic topics (Saints, prayers, devotions, etc.) while our children are cared for in the nursery, located next to the church.
We ask a small donation of money for the childcare workers, who keep the nursery. We take turns providing coffee and a light snack at each meeting. We also bring items from home, that we wish to donate. A donation table is provided for the mothers to take anything they need and what is not taken is given to a charity organization.
We also meet on the last Tuesday of the month for a mom's night out. We begin with a meeting in Varallo Parish Hall from 7-8pm and then go to dinner. This time is provided for fellowship for the mothers in the parish. We ask that mothers park somewhere outside the rectory lot (All Saints, UTC lot across from All Saints, or street parking, which are all free at that hour) to avoid getting locked out of the parking lot when returning from dinner, as the gate is programmed to lock at 9pm.
All mothers who are parishioners, visitors, and friends are welcome to join us for the Motherhood group activities.
