The Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary at St. Peter's meets every Saturday in Room 105 of the Parish Centre. For more information about the Legion of Mary at St. Peter's, please email Sabastine.
The Legion of Mary was founded in Dublin, Ireland on 7 September 1921. It is a lay Catholic organization whose members are giving service to the Church on a voluntary basis in almost every country. 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 Mary’s and the Church’s work.
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.
The Legion meets every Saturday
