On Sunday, May 12, the members of Shiloh Temple Apostolic Cathedral honored their 98-year-old matriarch, Mother Ethel Waiters, with a Mother’s Day Parade in Egg Harbor Township.

Mother Waiters is the co-founder and Mother in the Gospel of Shiloh Temple, which was founded by her husband, the late Bishop James A. Waiters in 1967.

Mother Waiters has worked in the community for over 65 years. She is known simply as Mother, by generations of “The World Famous Sunlights,” a children’s choir she founded in South Carolina and later in New Jersey.

The parade was escorted by the Egg Harbor Township Police Department.

Mother Waiters sat on her porch and enjoyed the car floats and live music.
