The main purpose of the Legion of Mary is to give glory to God through the sanctification of its members Arlington Regia
Members become instruments of the Holy Spirit through a balanced program of prayer and service.
Members meet once a week for prayer, planning and discussion in a family setting. Then they do two hours of work each week under the guidance of their spiritual director. Visitation of families, the sick and the lonely, catechesis, and helping with other parish activities are ways in which legionaries participate in the life of the parish.
September 7, 2021 is the 100th anniversary of the first Legion of Mary meeting which was held in Dublin, Ireland. The Church celebrates the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary on September 8.
This year Our Lady of the Visitation Praesidium at Nativity Catholic Church will hold a combined celebration on Saturday, September 4 right after the 9:00 am Mass in the Father Ready Room with recitation of the Rosary and brunch.
