In the UK it is a Catholic and Protestant holiday and is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
Originally the day had nothing to do with mothers, it was a day for Christians to visit their “mother” church.
However, the US event was launched separately and was not linked to religion at all.
In the US Mother’s Day was established in 1914 after Civil War activist, Anna Jarvis’s campaign for a celebration in May in the memory of her mother.
