Arise, All Women Who Have Hearts: Mothers’ Day Festival Sunday

Julia Ward Howe, Unitarian, and author of “Battle Hymn of the Republic” also founded

Mother’s Day in 1870. She wrote a stirring proclamation uniting mothers to work for

peace that you probably won’t find on a Hallmark card. Let us celebrate Julia Ward

Howe and the amazing power of mothers, including our own.

Normally we celebrate Flower Communion on Mothers’ Day, but this year we have

moved it to June 4th, so we can be part of a Global Unitarian movement to celebrate it

on the same day, it’s 95th Anniversary!
