Wave of Prayer
All dioceses with a Mothers’ Union have links with other dioceses throughout the world. Our special links are with:

Yambio, South Sudan
Garissa, Kenya
Mbamili, Nigeria
Willochra, Australia
Thailand

And our turn (with them) in the Wave of Prayer is 8th – 10th June every year – when all our sisters and brothers throughout the world are praying especially for us, just as we pray for them in turn.

Find out more about our link dioceses here and see prayer suggestions here.

Our Worldwide Co-ordinator, Kalyani Menon endeavours to stay in touch with our own link dioceses, and reports at our twice-yearly Council meetings on any communications she has had with them.
