ALL willing members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormons) have many opportunities to give service, contribute talents, and learn new skills. Each week, Mormon women give sermons, offer prayers in behalf of the congregation, instruct adults as well as children, and lead in the Church on the local and worldwide level. Mormon women also have the opportunity to serve as missionaries, and are presidents of the Relief Society, Young Women, and Primary organizations. They also carry out critical work in nurturing and teaching in the home.
Relief Society is an organization in which all Mormon women, or members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints all belong to and lead. This organization consists of several million women around the globe. The Church’s Young Women organization and the Primary (an organization with the purpose of teaching children) is also lead by women. As mentioned above, these institutions are present on local levels as well as worldwide levels, in which these Mormon women meet regularly in meetings to discuss and direct the effort of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
