The Legion of Mary

 

The Legion of Mary is a spiritual organization whose goals are two-fold:

1.    To participate in the work of the Church with the ultimate goal of making Jesus Christ known and loved.

2.    To sanctify its members through actively performing the spiritual and corporal works of mercy among the members of the parish.

The Legion of Mary was started in All Saints Parish long ago under the guidance of Fr. Shear. Active members include all practicing Catholics of both sexes who desire to work for Christ.

          At the weekly meeting, the members of the Legion of Mary join in special prayers in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary. They plan the various works of mercy that they will carry out each week and report on those that they have completed.

          Auxiliary members of the Legion of Mary support the active members by joining them in spirit through the daily recitation of the Legion prayers.
