Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary is an organization of men and women who meet weekly to pray the rosary along with other prayers and do spiritual and corporal works of mercy in the parish and community.
This helps members develop greater holiness in their own lives as well as spread a deeper devotion to the rosary and to Mary.
There are two types of the presidium that make up the local group. The Active members meet weekly on Wednesdays at 10:30am in the Parish Hall. There are also Auxiliary members who say designated prayers and the rosary daily but do not go out to meetings.
