Its first president was Mr. Luis B. Lluch Garn and its first custodian canon of the Holy Chalice worship. Benjamn Civera Miralles was the ecclesiastic assistant of the Fraternity. The aim of this association is to encourage devotion to the Holy Chalice, promoting works in the chapel and the spreading of the knowledge of the sacred cup with conferences, articles and book publishing.
