What is Legion Work ?

Apostolic work is being Mary’s hands and feet in today’s world.

It could mean visiting prisons, homes, hospitals, nursing homes, organising retreats and works for young people, helping in two hostels for homeless men and women, discussion groups, instructing children, young people, or adults preparing for the sacraments

Who may join the Legion of Mary ?

All practising Catholics who wish to play their full part as lay members of the Church and who are prepared to follow the Legion system.

Do you realise?

That you who have faith have something very precious to share

That you can alleviate spiritual hunger by sharing your faith

That sharing your faith can make a difference to others

That Christ expects you to play your part in his work
