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.
