The Legion of Mary started in Dublin on 7th September 1921, the evening before Our Lady’s Birthday. 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.
In St. Joseph’s there are two Praesidia (the Praesidium is a parish-based group) and they meet each week to pray, listen to spiritual readings and report on work done. Work varies in different parishes but often includes visiting the sick and housebound; sometimes census work is done.
It is a great privilege to visit people in their homes and to listen to and pray with them. If you would like to join the Legion of Mary, please speak with one of the members or contact the Parish Office.
