The Legion of Mary is a lay Catholic organization that was founded in Dublin, Ireland, in 1921 by Frank Duff. Its primary mission is to promote the spiritual growth and devotion of its members through prayer, evangelization, and acts of service. The Legion of Mary encourages its members, also known as Legionaries, to actively participate in the life of the Church and carry out works of mercy, visiting the sick, elderly, and homebound, and reaching out to those in need. The organization is present in various countries and operates under the guidance and approval of the local Catholic Church authorities.
Founder of the Legion of Mary, Frank Duff was born in Dublin, Ireland, on June 7, 1889. He entered the Civil Service at the age of 18. At 24 he joined the Society of St. Vincent de Paul where he was led to a deeper commitment to his Catholic faith and at the same time he acquired a great sensitivity to the needs of the poor and underprivileged.
Along with a group of Catholic women and Fr. Michael Toher, Dublin Archdiocese, he formed the first praesidium of the Legion of Mary on September 7, 1921. From that date until his death, November 7, 1980, he guided the world-wide extension of the Legion with heroic dedication. He attended the Second Vatican Council as a lay observer.
His profound insights into the role of the Blessed Virgin in the plan of Redemption, as also into the role of the lay faithful in the mission of the Church, are reflected in the Legion Handbook which is almost entirely his composition.
They are having a regular meeting every Tuesday at 7:00 pm at the Parlour Room beside the parish office.
With them is Fr. Fulgensio Suunna, OSM, as Spiritual Director.
