THE LEGION OF MARY
The Legion of Mary was started in Dublin, Ireland in 1921. Today it is the largest apostolic lay organization for men and women in the Catholic Church.
The Legion is in over 170 countries and there are 4 million active members and 5 million auxiliary members.
Active members attend a weekly meeting and do two hours of apostolic work each week. Members do a variety of spiritual works of mercy including visiting the sick in hospitals and nursing homes.
Auxiliary members pray the Legion prayers and say a Rosary each day. The prayers on the Legion prayer card are said in honor of Our Blessed Mother for her intentions.
The Legion of Mary is a way to grow closer to Our Blessed Mother and her Son. It uniquely fulfills our call to spread the Gospel.
MEETINGS: The Legion of Mary meets every Thursday from 8:45-10 am in the Sacristy meeting room in Church (door to the right as you enter main doors of Church).
