Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary is a lay apostolic association of Catholics with well over three million active members in almost every country of the world. It has been active in the United States since 1931 and was endorsed by the Second Vatican Council.

The main purpose of the Legion of Mary is to give glory to God through the sanctification of its members

A Mission of Prayer & Service

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.
