Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion:
it cannot be shaken; it stands fast for ever.

As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people both now and for evermore.’

(Psalm 125:1-2)

About Us

The Society of Our Lady of Penrhys grew from the annual pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Penrhys in the Diocese of Llandaff of the Church in Wales.

We are, of course, firmly rooted in the catholic tradition of the Church in Wales (Anglican). However, membership is open to any baptised Christian.

We are a society of people who value the shrine at Penrhys and who are committed to making and promoting pilgrimage there (particularly the annual pilgrimage in May of each year)

We do not have any ownership of or responsibility for the upkeep of the shrine.

The present image of Our Lady of Penrhys, carved from portland stone (and the land on which it stands) was erected and is owned by the Archdiocese of Cardiff (You can find out more about this on the 'History' page of this website).

The holy well, which is on the mountainside, is on land owned by the local authority.
