Additional Relief Society meetings......Sister Julie Beck

In the last General Relief Society Meeting, Sister Julie Beck, General Relief Society President, described changes in the Relief Society meetings. The following information comes from

Julie B. Beck on the purpose of Relief Society meetings:

"In counsel with the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, it was determined that rather than give these additional Relief Society meetings a new title, all such meetings and activities will now be referred to simply as Relief Society meetings.

"These meetings are meant to be instrumental in teaching the skills and responsibilities of womanhood and motherhood in the Lord’s plan."

Why do we hold Relief Society meetings on days other than Sunday?
To help women progress toward eternal life; and to learn and accomplish the charitable and practical responsibilities of the Relief Society.
