guest Sister

The Priory of Our Lady, Walsingham

Welcome to

The Society of St Margaret,

The Priory of Our Lady


The Society of St Margaret was founded by John Mason Neale in 1855 in East Grinstead. In  1947 three Sisters from the house in Haggerston moved to Walsingham to form a house to help at the Shrine of Our Lady.

The Sisters are a Traditional Anglican Community whose daily life is centred on the Eucharist and the daily Office, from which flows our growing involvement in the ministry of healing, and reconciliation in the Shrine, the local parishes and the wider Church. We welcome guests in our guest house for short periods of rest, relaxation and retreat, and are available to pilgrims and visitors. We also work in the Education Department in the Shrine

Sr Teresa

Sr Teresa remains in Care at Chiswick. The operation on her broken right arm last December was not successful as her bones are very thin and fragile, and natural healing is insufficient for her to put pressure on the arm - a mid- June clinic appointment showed no improvement over the previous three months - thus she continues to need more care than is possible here. Sadly, a brain scan reveals the changes of early dementia but she remains her positive, buoyant self and loves chatting with visitors and receiving phone calls.


Please note that Sr Teresa is unable to receive or send emails pro tem, thank you.
