 The Relief Society General Presidency is called to lead the Relief Society, the Church’s organization for women, which has millions of members worldwide. The presidency is composed of a president, who is called by the President of the Church, and two counselors. These three women travel around the world to visit, teach, and minister to the women of the Church. They also counsel with other general Church leaders to strengthen the women of the Church and their families.

The Relief Society of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized by Joseph Smith, the Church’s first President, in 1842. He called it “a select Society separate from all the evils of the world, choice, virtuous, and holy”1. He also taught that the purpose of the Relief Society was “not only to relieve the poor, but to save souls”2.

Today the Relief Society builds on those ideals and helps women as they strive to become true disciples of Jesus Christ. Relief Society helps women prepare for the blessings of eternal life. It provides opportunities for women to grow as disciples through Sunday gospel instruction, weekday Relief Society meetings, ministering efforts, and opportunities to serve and help others.
