Legion of Mary
Who We Are
The Legion of Mary (Latin: Legio Mariae, Postnominal Abbreviation L.O.M.) is an international association of members of the Catholic Church who serve it on a voluntary basis. It was founded in Dublin, by the layman and civil servant Frank Duff.
Today, active and auxiliary (praying) members make up a total of over 10 million members worldwide, making it the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church. (Cf Wikipedia)
The basic unit of the Legion is called a Praesidium, which is normally based in a parish. The Praesidium, usually a group of 3–12 members, meets weekly in its parish. We undertake any and every form of Catholic apostolate (especially corporal and spiritual works of mercy, through contact work) with the aim of our sanctification and the evangelisation of the world by cooperating with the ecclesiastical authorities.
In St Joseph’s Church (Victoria Street), we are inviting interested Catholics to visit our weekly meetings to get to know us and see if you are called to this apostolate.
