Our Lord has promised that He will imprint His Divine likeness on the souls of those who honour His Holy Countenance.

Sister Marie de St Pierre (January 21, 1847).

Devotion to the Holy Face was revealed by Jesus to Sister Marie de St. Pierre (1816-1848).

Sr Marie was a Carmelite from the Monastery in Tours, France.

This devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus, based on the life and writings of Sister Marie de St. Pierre was officially recognized as a Confraternity at Tours in 1884. In October 1885, the following year, Pope Leo XIII raised the Confraternity to an Arch-confraternity, thereby bringing about the spread of this devotion for the whole world. Thereupon, those associated with the Arch-confraternity are granted permission to initiate the erection of a Confraternity of Reparation to the Holy Face of Jesus.

Hence, with the consent of His Lordship, Bishop Mark Davies, Bishop of Shrewsbury, a Confraternity to the Holy Face, has been established in the Monastery Chapel of the Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Birkenhead. Whose affiliation to the Arch-confraternity of the Holy Face at Tours, took place in 2022.
