The idea that God became a human being in order to rescue humanity has been a dominant theme of Christian teaching for centuries.

To be fully human demands that one should have a mother. The Christian churches down through the ages have agreed that when God chose to enter the human race a young Jewish girl became his mother.

Each Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus and we see him depicted with his mother, Mary. But a mother is for ever, not just for Christmas.



The Society of Mary wishes to encourage Christians to pay proper respect to the girl who was willing to become the Mother of God. Not worship - that is reserved for God himself alone. Just honour and respect.

This Society was formed within the Church of England in 1931, but it welcomes members from any denomination. It arranges acts of worship to mark the major Marian festivals, organises pilgrimages, publishes literature, and generally seeks to tap into the rich tradition of spirituality surrounding Mary the Mother of God.

Do come and join us in that quest.
