Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary is a lay Catholic organization whose members offer their services to the Church, on a voluntary basis, all over the world. It was founded by Frank Duff in Dublin on September 7, 1921.

The basic unit of the Legion is called the Praesidium, which holds weekly meetings, where prayer is intermingled with instruction in the Faith, and the work of the apostolate is discussed & planned. Active members are required to attend these weekly meetings at which they undertake some apostolic work assigned to them each week by the Praesidium.

There is also Auxiliary Membership for those who desire to associate themselves with the Legion's work with the support of their prayers.

The objective of the Legion is to give glory to God through a life of holiness cultivated by prayer and active apostolic work. The Legion seeks to operate in close union with the priest or deacon assigned as the Spiritual Director, to whom it looks for its spiritual formation and guidance.

We meet Monday mornings from 9:00-10:30 am in the Faith Formation Building. We would love to have you come join us at a Legion of Mary meeting.
