The Confraternity of Christian Mothers (CCM) is a worldwide organization of wives and mothers striving to raise their children in the Catholic faith. Its aim is the sanctification of its members and their families through prayer in communion with thousands of members, by talks and discussions, by the frequentation of the Sacraments, and by the edifying example of the other members.
“Mothers rule the world. They guide the destinies of homes; that is why God is relying on mothers to keep Christ in the world by keeping Him in their hearts and homes.”
Under the special patronage of Mary, the “Mother of Sorrows”, Christian Mothers are encouraged joyously to undertake the important task of training and sanctifying the young souls entrusted to their care. They are instructed with ways to edify one another by word and deed, to support one another by fervent prayer and in this way become the mainstay of the spiritual life within their own family, and a fruitful source of blessing to the community in which they live.
This is the fundamental aim of all Confraternities affiliated with the Archconfraternity. Christian Mothers learn to unite their own hearts to Christ and then they help to draw their families closer to the Lord. In that way they become the leaven which makes their own parish and community more alive with the presence of the risen Lord.
This Meetup group site is designed for use by the members of CCM at Sacred Heart Parish in Winchester, VA.
