Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary is a world-wide apostolic organization of ordinary Catholic lay people (men, women, and children) with over 3 million active members in almost every country of the world. Their purpose is to become better Catholics through prayer and active service to the Lord and His Church.
They take their inspiration from Mary, the Mother of God, Mother of the Church, and our Mother. In all that they do, they try to imitate her in humility, prayer, mortification, purity, patience, wisdom, and above all faith and love for her Son, Jesus. Spiritual works of mercy comprise their service. Legionaries seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit in all their apostolic work. Their apostolic work is at the discretion of the spiritual director, usually the parish priest.
Legion of Mary leads the rosary prayer after morning Mass at Canadian Martyrs Parish, assists in bringing communion to parishioners who are in the hospitals, and maintains a connection with the Legion on a Diocesan level as well.
All are welcome to join the Legion of Mary weekly meeting on Monday evening (at 7:30 p.m.) in the LaLemant Room.
