The Legion of Mary
- The Legion of Mary was founded in 1921 in Dublin, Ireland.
- Our official website link is: http://www.legionofmary.ie/
- From an outreach perspective, our primary focus is on the various Works of Mercy (in particular - The Spiritual Works of Mercy).
- A central driving force to the spirituality of the Legion of Mary is St. Louis Marie De Montfort and his writings, especially his work 'True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary'.
- Membership is comprised of both Active and Auxiliary members.
- The Legion of Mary at Most Pure Heart of Mary parish was formed in 2008.
- The Active membership meets weekly (Saturday at 1p) in the MPHM Parish Center.
- A short list of some of the various works we undertake are as follows:
- Visiting individuals in homes, hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, etc.
- Coordinating an annual Total Consecration program (via Fr. Gaitley's '33 Days to Morning Glory' book) on behalf of MPHM parish.
- Coordinating Divine Mercy Sunday that is hosted by MPHM parish.
- Providing mentorsip to the Legion of Mary at Benedictine College (which is run entirely by students!). Their website is: https://benedictinelegi onofmary.wordpress.com/
