WFCS was formerly called MOTHERS’ UNION, only married women and mothers were involved. Hence to make it more inclusive, the new term was coined. WFCS today is more broad-based and has much participation from women.The members would supervise the coffee-making, participate in the Cathedral School Annual Fete and give emphasis to outreach programmes. Even today, ladies take the lead in preparing the Church for important events like Christmas, Good-Friday, Easter and any other occasion where help is needed.
While the upkeep of and aesthetic presentation of the church premises, arrangements for refreshments during and after special events at the church and an emphasis on outreach have traditionally been the proud privilege and responsibility of WFCS members, today the efforts towards outreach has received greater impetus through the organisation of medical camps in the city as well as outskirts of Mumbai. This is further supported by the efforts to encourage the literacy and education of tribal communities in particular. There is a keen interest to expand into any other projects involving the needy. Members also visit old-age homes, orphanages at regular intervals and spend time with the in-mates and provide for specific needs of these institutions.
