The Society of Mary springs from two similar societies, founded in 1880 and 1901 respectively, which united in 1931. It has members all over the world and is not confined to Anglicans alone.
The Society is dedicated to the glory of God and in honour of the Holy Incarnation, under the invocation of Our Lady, Help of Christians.
Membership of the Society of Mary is open to members of the Holy Catholic Church
who conform to her discipline and precepts and who promise to fulfil the conditions,
promote the objects and keep the rules of the Society.
