In the spirit of Dorothy Pilarski's acclaimed book "Motherhood Matters", and to mark Mother’s Day, The Register is inviting readers to share personal vignettes about their mothers.

Tell The Catholic Register why your mother matters

  • May 3, 2012

The deadline for submissions has now passed.


Last fall Catholic Register Books published Motherhood Matters: Inspirational Stories, Letters, Quotes & Prayers for Catholic Moms. Written by Register contributor Dorothy Pilarski, the book was praised for its “home-spun wisdom,” “inspirational vignettes” and “practical advice.”

The lessons contained in Motherhood Matters apply year round, but are particularly poignant at Mother’s Day, on May 13 this year.

So, in the spirit of Motherhood Matters, and to mark Mother’s Day, The Register is inviting readers to share personal vignettes about their mothers. We’re looking for fond memories, cherished words of advice, humourous anecdotes or any other reminiscence that shows the love, faith and dedication of Catholic moms.

A selection of vignettes will be published in our Mother’s Day issue, with more published here on our web site.

In addition, 10 people will receive a copy of Motherhood Matters based on a random draw from all the submissions. So please include your name, address and phone number.

Submissions must be 300 words maximum and the deadline is Friday May 4th. We prefer to receive them electronically so please use the form below and include a photo if you have one. We would appreciate the highest quality photograph you have.
