  • Archief
  • 1979-1995

The Mothers' Union archives consist of meeting agendas and minutes, reports, financial records, programmes and booklets, newsletters, other textual records, photographs, newspaper clippings, artifacts, and an unidentified audiocassette. The activities and events documented in the archives include: hosting pancake breakfasts on the first day of Sunday School in early September; baking simnel cakes (a form of fruitcake) as part of Mothering Sunday; participating in the annual Christmas pageant; stitching needlepoint covers for church kneelers; organizing “Winter Games” events (evening gatherings of parishioners and others to play card games and board games in the church hall in winter); holdings prayer sessions and meetings for members; providing support for refugees and newcomers to the Island; creating a “link letters” activity comparable to “pen pals”; and holding regular meetings. A major project for the Prince Edward Island chapter documented in the archives is the creation of a Mothers’ Union banner, which was unveiled on 24 May 1992.

Information provided by St. Peter's Cathedral Church parishioner Catherine Edwards in February 2020 suggests that Donalda Winter and Eileen Paton were responsible for bringing the Mothers' Union to St. Peter's Cathedral.
