Legion of Mary...
The Legion of Mary is the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church, with well over 3 million active members in almost every country of 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 Council. 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 door-to-door evangelization, parishioner visitation, visitation of the sick or aged, religious education, visiting the newly baptized, and meeting the other spiritual needs of the parish community. Legionaries are under the guidance of a spiritual director named by the pastor.
Working in pairs, they perform two hours of definite work each week under the guidance of the Spiritual Director. Auxiliary Members attend no meeting, but are required daily to pray the Rosary and Legion prayers. Those under 18 would belong to a junior group.
Please come visit to see if this is what Our lady may be calling you to do.
The St. Lawrence Legion of Mary meets for about an hour on Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. in Hammond Hall. For more information, please contact the Parish Office or visit http://www.legionofmary.ie/ for general information about the Legion of Mary.
