What is the Legion of Mary ?

The Legion of Mary is a lay apostolic association of Catholics who are under the powerful leadership of Mary Immaculate, Mediatrix of All Graces.

The object of the Legion of Mary is the glory of God through the holiness of its members developed by prayer and active co-operation in the work of Mary and the Church. The unit of the Legion of Mary is called a praesidium, which holds a weekly meeting, where prayer is intermingled with reports and discussion. Persons who wish to join the Legion must apply for membership in a Praesidium. The Legion sees as its priority the spiritual and social welfare of each individual. The members participate in the life of the parish through the visitation of families, the sick, both in their homes and in hospitals and through collaboration in every apostolic and missionary undertaking sponsored by the parish. Every legionary is required to carry out a weekly apostolic work in the spirit of faith and in union with Mary.
