The Mariological Society of America is a Roman Catholic theological society dedicated to the study of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Each year the society publishes the proceedings of the annual meeting in Marian Studies, a publication that contains articles addressing a particular theme connected to the role of Mary in the spiritual life of the Church, and which is subscribed to by Catholic libraries in various universities and institutions and quoted in the major media.
The society is listed in the Official Catholic Directory as one of the national organizations of the United States Catholic Conference and is sanctioned as a Roman Catholic organization.
Yet, the position of the society is that although a Roman Catholic society, it is open to discussion and growth in mutual understanding with those of other faith traditions. The society also cooperates with universities to hold Marian exhibitions.
As of September 2012, the President of the Society is currently the Reverend Father James Phalan, a Holy Cross Father who is also Director of Family Rosary International.
