Sodalitas Mariae Matris Sacerdotum

"I am immensely grateful to God for this Sodality and for our friendship in it; for this profound sense of community that is developing among us. We are a dispersed community, but we must never let our love seem dispersed. We will grow in love as we grow in knowledge of each other. There is a narrative that the church is in decline; that Anglo Catholicism has had its day. I do not believe either of those things. The men and women offering themselves in the Sodality are the new life, the new future, the mission priests of the coming years and decades."

Enjoying Fellowship…

“SMMS is not only a group of catholic minded clergy but a strong support network of prayer and encouragement.”

Christ Centred…

    “As priests in the Anglican Catholic tradition, we may continuously deepen our discipleship through the grace of God and the intercession of Mary to become more Christ centred and outward focused.”

Supporting Priests…

“SMMS  continues to feed and nourish the theological and spiritual underpinning that is necessary to sustain the priestly character.”

The Sodality Prayer

Father,

in your love for us you chose Mary to be the Mother of your Son, the first to welcome Him into her heart and bring Him forth for a waiting world. Grant us such a measure of her grace as to be truly devoted to your Word. By the loving intercession of Our Lady, reconsecrate us each day and by the guidance of the Holy Spirit bring us, [your pilgrim priests,] to be set forth upon the ocean of light which is the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Amen

Mary the Mother of Priests
