Grow closer to Jesus and His Mother Join us as a guest at a Legion of Mary meeting. 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 object of the Legion of Mary is the glory of God through the holiness of its members developed by prayer and active co-operation, under ecclesiastical guidance, in Mary's and the Church's work of crushing the head of the serpent and advancing the reign of Christ.
The vocation of Mary is always to bring Jesus into the world. Nothing more and nothing less. With her whole mind, heart, soul and body, indeed, with everything that she is and has she seeks to give Jesus to each one of us. This too is the authentic and primary mission of the Church.
The Legion seeks to continue the missionary vocation of Mary. True Devotion to Mary takes precedence over all other works of the Legion. All our apostolic activity on the outside is greatly diminished if there is no union with Mary on the inside in our hearts. For this reason, Legionaries turn to Mary before, during and after our weekly apostolic activities. We turn to her habitually. She is our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
We have two Praesidia (groups) meeting at St. Sebastian Parish, one at 8:40 AM and the other at 7:00 PM on Mondays.
We also have an Intermediate Junior Legion of Mary (ages 13-17) meeting on Thursdays at 7:00 PM. We hope to start an elementary-aged Junior Legion in the Fall.
