Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday is a day dedicated to honoring mother churches, which are the churches where individuals are baptized and become "children of the church." This tradition has been celebrated since the Middle Ages in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and some Commonwealth countries on the fourth Sunday in Lent. On Mothering Sunday, Christians historically make visits to their mother church—the place where they received the sacrament of baptism.
