Members from around the Diocese enjoyed a wonderful retreat at Elie over the weekend

where our treasure lies and our gifts from God.
Lady Day 2011
at St Ninian’s Cathedral
It was a wonderful day led by Bishop Bob Gillies from Aberdeen and Orkney Diocese.
He reminded us that it was our hands, feet and eyes that were used by God for the
world wide work of Mothers' Union. He wore robes gifted to him by a Diocese in South
Africa. He told us that the Bishops in South Africa were all Mothers' Union members
and could not be Bishops unless they were.
