The Legion of Mary

What is it?

The Legion of Mary is an organization for lay Catholics. Frank Duff founded it in Dublin in 1921 and it now has branches in almost every country in the world. Its headquarters are in North Brunswick Street Dublin.

Frank Duff recognized the important role, which develops, on people; through Baptism, to live an Apostolic life and in the Legion of Mary he provided a structure of prayer and work whereby members can fulfil that role

What does it entail?

Active membership entails attending a weekly meeting and performing two hours apostolic work each week. Work is assigned at the meeting and is always done in pairs. Members place themselves in Our Lady's hands, recognizing that she has no hands but ours, no feet but ours, no voice but ours to carry out her motherly role of tending Christ´s needs in everybody.

Please come along to our meeting on Wednesday morning at 11.30am, VEQ Room, main entrance of Firhouse Church, and see how you too could allow Our Lady continue her work of caring for souls through your generosity of giving her a few hours each week.
