I hope the entries available here will be of
interest to you and give you an insight into our life, work and Christian mission.
Our Society seeks the glory of God revealed
in Our Lord Jesus Christ, born for us as Perfect Man and Perfect God.
Christ was given to us through Mary, His Blessed and Ever-Virgin Mother.
As Members of the Society of Mary, we love and honour Her, who is shown to us in the Bible as ‘Blessed among Women’ and who was loved and honoured by Jesus.
What does this mean in our everyday seeking
to live out the Christian life and our calling? Our prayer and devotion to Mary constantly reminds that, through the
Incarnation, Christ lives in us and we live in Him.
This directs us to seek Jesus in worship; through a deepening of our spiritual lives;
in our relationships with one
another and with those around us; in
every aspect and dimension of the world. We are made deeply conscious of our fellowship with another and, most especially, with the Communion of Saints and the great company of all who have gone before us in faith.
The Society provides for us to meet together
in friendship and enjoyment of one another’s company and mutual support. We come together in worship and so share in the ‘beauty of holiness’. We have the privilege of sharing our experiences and the good things of our beliefs with others.
Perhaps our regular Pilgrimages serve to
sum-up some of these fundamental elements of life within our Society.
Visiting holy places supports and stimulates our faith, gives us hope and encouragement, deepens our love of God, of Our Lady and of one another. There is appreciation of beauty, a sense of wonder and a deepening of understanding. There is
always relaxation, fun and enjoyment.
I invite you to contact us for

my greetings and Blessing,
