Union of Catholic Mothers



The St Matthew’s Foundation is part of the National Union of Catholic Mothers, one of the largest lay organizations in England.

Membership is open to all Catholic women, married and single and to non-catholic wives of Catholic husbands. The UCM   motto is “Meeting, Caring and Sharing” and its aims are to uphold the sanctity of marriage, to defend Christian values in family life and to offer love, sympathy and practical help to those in difficulty.

At national level the UCM is represented on the National Board of Catholic Women and The World Union of Catholic Women’s Organizations as well as the National Council of Women.
