Altar Rosary and Sanctuary Societies

Legion of Mary

Legion of Mary is a lay Catholic organization whose members give service to the Church on a voluntary basis.

The group gathers for weekly prayer on
Sunday at 10:30 AM at St. Thomas Aquinas in the Cebula Room.

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 unit of the Legion of Mary is called a praesidium, which holds a weekly meeting, where prayer is intermingled with reports and discussion. Persons who wish to join the Legion must apply for membership in a Praesidium. Our local STA praesidium is devoted to Our lady of Mount Carmel.

The Legion sees as its priority the spiritual and social welfare of each individual. The members 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. Every legionary is required to carry out a weekly apostolic work in the spirit of faith and in union with Mary. If you think you might be interested please call the St. Thomas Aquinas Parish Office at 607-797-4015 or by email at stthomas@sta-sp.org.

St. Thomas Aquinas Prayer Network

As intercessors, we are agreeing to help carry the burden of another until the burden is released.

Saint Thomas Prayer Network invites you to submit your personal requests for prayers.  You need not be a member of the parish or even a Catholic or an area resident to use this special ministry.  You may submit a full name of the person to be prayed for (but only with the person’s permission) or you do not have to submit their name. You may supply as much information as you like or for example, ask prayers for “John who has cancer” or “Mary who is having serious surgery” or simply for a “special intention.” Prayers continue for as long as they are needed, and updates are welcome.

Please contact Anne at 607-725-2812. Please leave your intention(s) and your name (first name or last name or both ) or you may make an anonymous request.
