Sharing is caring!

The wife of a former Vicar at Saint Anne’s Church, Molete, Ibadan, Mrs Victoria Iluyomade has appealed to women to join hands with their husbands to train their children.

Mrs Iluyomade made the appeal in a sermon at the church service commemorating this year’s Mothering Sunday.

She explained that it was only when parents jointly trained their children that the children could turn up well.

Mrs Iluyomade while stressing the importance of woman in the house admonished women to nip in the bud any vices noticed in their children as they, mothers, usually stayed more at home than fathers.

The special service witnessed women carrying out the roles of the wardens, cross bearers, drummers and organists.

The women who were gaily dressed in blue and white attires danced to the beautiful lyrics celebrating motherhood.

Mothering Sunday is celebrated worldwide on the third Sunday in Lent. On this day, daughters are expected to attend their mother church to worship.

Highlights of the programme was the presentation of gifts to mothers by the wife of the vicar of the church, Mrs Olaoluwayimika Faleye who also led the prayers of intercession.
