What you will find on this site

On this site you will find information about the Company of Mary, its various divisions, and what we do. You will also find information about the wider Montfortian Family of three religious congregations and our associates; and about our Founder, St Louis Marie de Montfort, his life, his work, his writing, those who collaborated with him, and the Spirituality he left to the world.

You can also gain access to the writings of St. Louis Marie: either short descriptions of them, or online versions that are made available for private study. Other resources available are various downloadable documents (articles, decrees, letters, and some of the lesser-known works of St. Louis Marie); archived articles from the newsletter, "In the Footsteps of St. Louis Marie de Montfort", published between 1995 and 2008; and a "virtual" pilgrimage to the places where St. Louis Marie lived and worked; as well as links to other pages of Montfortian interest.

At the top of each page, below the header, you will find a drop-down menu that will take you to the various parts of our site. We hope you enjoy your visit. There's also a comprehensive Sitemap under the Home button.
