When John Mason Neale founded the Sisterhood of St. Margaret to care for the sick, he was met with opposition from church members. They attempted to thwart his efforts to alleviate the misery of the poor, many of whom died unattended. He was accused of returning to Roman Catholicism because of the nuns.

Although other members of the Church of England spoke evil against him during his life-time, John Mason Neale is honored by the Church every year on August 7.
