The Cell of the Society Our Lady of Walsingham…
…meets regularly to pray and deepen our knowledge of Mary within Christian tradition and the Shrine at Walsingham. Our recently established cell is dedicated to ‘Holy Wisdom’ and serves both the wider North Cheltenham Team, and other Christian’s who wish explore catholic tradition within the Church of England. We began with 12 members, all of whom are very active within our Cell group.
The Objects of the Society are
To honour Mary, the Mother of God and to deepen faith in the incarnation of Our Lord.
To promote devotion to Our Lady and pilgrimage to Walsingham.
To further, with the aid of Our Lady’s prayers, the conversion of the nations and the re-union of Christendom.
To seek holiness of life through prayer, the scriptures and the sacraments.
Members of the Society are asked to say the Angelus each day.
Membership of the Society
Membership is open to all who have been baptised.
The joining fee is £10.00, for which a new member receives the Society’s badge, membership card and the current edition of the Walsingham Review. The joining fee also covers the first year’s membership. Thereafter there is an annual subscription of £10.00 to cover the cost of receiving the Walsingham Review, the Society’s magazine.
Details of each member’s name and address are recorded on a database at the Shrine; and a membership data base for the Cell is maintained by the Cell Secretary
A lamp burns in the Holy House for the Society, (and also for All Saints’ Church and Scout Group), and 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.
Please speak to the Cell Secretary Karen Winder (chelt.234299) for more details about the group. All are welcome to join!
