Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary is the largest apostolic organization of the laity in the Catholic Church, open to all Catholics in good standing with a desire to serve Our Lord Jesus Christ through the intercession of His Blessed Mother Mary, and with over 3 million active members in over 160 countries worldwide!
The purpose of the Legion is to give glory to God through the sanctification of its members. Legionaries become instruments of the Holy Spirit through a life of prayer, frequent reception of the sacraments, and apostolic work done in union with Mary, under the guidance of a priest.
Active members attend a Legion meeting once a week on Tuesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. in the Pastoral Center (guests are always welcome and may go on one of the work assignments with an experienced member) and perform works of service, typically about 2 hrs a week.
Work Assignments at Holy Spirit:
- Visiting the sick and homebound of the parish
- Weekly Rosary at Leewood Health Care Center
- Sacred Heart Enthronement in parishioners ‘ homes
- Pilgrim Virgin Statue Visitation
- Door-to-door evangelization within the parish boundaries
Parishioners who are unable to attend weekly meetings and assist in the apostolic work can be auxiliary members. This dedicated group recites the Rosary daily and says the prayers contained in the Legion Tessera. These members unite with us in prayer as we perform our apostolic work.
