Welcome to the Society of Saint Gregory

Promoting study, understanding and good practice
in the music and liturgy of the
Roman Catholic Church

Who we are

We are the national society for liturgy and music in the Roman Catholic Church in the British Isles.

Our aim is to promote study, understanding and good practice in the celebration of the liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church, in accordance with the teaching of the Church.

Founded as a charity in 1929, our organisation has flourished and evolved to support Christians of any denomination who seek to achieve similar aims through liturgy, music and the arts.

Find out more about our history and the different ways in which we carry out our charitable purpose today.

Key benefits of membership

This year is our 90th anniversary

To celebrate the Society’s 90 years of active contribution to the liturgical and musical life of the Roman Catholic Church in England and Wales, an exciting year of formation and celebration has been planned, including a Pilgrimage to Rome in October 2019.

We hope you can be part of our celebrations.
