Today is the 53rd anniversary of the foundation of SOLT. The Society of Our Lady was founded in 1958 in the Parish of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, located in the Sangre de Christo Mountains. This parish was under the jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our Lady’s Society quickly spread throughout the United States, having received the status of a Pious Society on July 16, 1958, the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.
