The LEGION OF MARY is the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church, well over 3 million active members in almost every country in the world. It has been active in the United States since 1931, has been approved by the last 6 Popes, and was endorsed by the second Vatican Counsel. The main purpose of the Legion of Mary is to give glory to God through the sanctification of its members.
Members become instruments of the Holy Spirit through a balanced program of prayer and service. Works include parishioner visitation, prison ministry, visitation to the sick or aged, religious education, visiting the newly baptized, door to door evangelization when possible, and meeting the other spiritual needs of the parish community. Legionaries are under the guidance of a spiritual director named by the pastor. The Legion is, in essence, an extension of the heart and hands of the pastor.
Members meet once a week for prayer, planning and discussion in a family setting. Then they do two hours of definite work each week in pairs and under the guidance of their spiritual director.
Our meeting times are every Tuesday at 1:30-3:00pm in the St. Therese meeting room in the Clunan Center.
Please come pray with us.
