The Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary is an international association of members of the Roman Catholic Church who serve it on a voluntary basis. Founded in Dublin in 1918, as a Roman Catholic Marian Movement by layman and Servant of God Frank Duff. 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. Its stated mission is for active members to serve God under the banner of Mary by the Spiritual works of Mercy. The members participate in the life of the parish through visitation of families, the sick, both in their homes, in hospitals and nursing homes and through collaboration in every apostolic and missionary undertaking sponsored by the parish. Each legionary is required to carry out a weekly apostolic work in the spirit of faith and in union with Mary under the influence of the Holy Spirit, having Divine Grace as its moving principle and support, and the glory of God and the salvation of souls as its final end and purpose.
