Relief Society’s Purpose

The Relief Society has updated the wording in its purpose statement. It now reads, “Relief Society helps prepare women for the blessings of eternal life as they increase faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and His Atonement; strengthen individuals, families, and homes through ordinances and covenants; and work in unity to help those in need.”

The statement reflects additional insights that will help Latter-day Saint women understand the divine identity, eternal work, and purpose of each sister in Relief Society.
