Membership of the SocietyThe Constitution of the Society

The Guardians of the Holy House have ultimate responsibility for the life of the Shrine. They delegate the running of the Society to the Priest Administrator of the Shrine who is ex officio the Superior General of the Society.

A lamp burns in the Holy House for the Society and the Society is mentioned in the intercessions each day at Shrine Prayers. A monthly requiem is offered at the Shrine for departed members of the Society; their names are recorded in the Walsingham Review, the magazine of the Society and of the Priest Associates of the Holy House, in thanksgiving for their life and pilgrimage witness.

Members of the Society are able to unite themselves more closely with the Shrine's work of intercessory prayer by joining the Living Rosary of Our Lady of Walsingham. Details are available from the Membership Secretary.
