A Confraternity is a voluntary Catholic association established under Church authority for the promotion of special works of Christian charity or piety.

The goal of this Confraternity of Christian Mothers is “to multiply the graces for which the Christian mothers pray. To this end the hearts of these mothers, united to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, place their vows, cares and prayers together, so as to bring down the blessings from on high upon their children and families.”
