The Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary is a lay apostolic association of Catholics who, with the sanction of the Church and under the powerful leadership of Mary Immaculate, Mediatrix of All Graces, serve the Church and their neighbour on a voluntary basis in about 170 countries. With the approval and support of the Popes and a great many Bishops, Priests and Religious, as well as the prayers and efforts of legionaries, the Legion, by the grace of God, has grown into a worldwide organisation with several million members.

The Legion of Mary (Latin: Legio Mariae) was founded in Dublin in 1917, as a Marian movement by the layman Frank Duff.
Today, active and auxiliary (praying) members of the Legion make up a total of over 10 million members worldwide, making it the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church.
The object of the Legion of Mary is the glory of God through the holiness of its members developed by prayer and active co-operation in Mary’s and the Church’s work.

The members of the Legion are engaged primarily in the performance of spiritual works of mercy and participate in the life of the parish through visitation of families, the sick, both in their homes and in hospitals and through collaboration in every apostolic and missionary undertaking sponsored by the parish
