legion of mary
The Legion of Mary as the name suggests is a group of `prayer warriors` dedicated to Mother Mary. The Legion of our Parish consists of two groups; Juniors and Seniors who have our meetings once a week for about an hour or more praying to the Holy Spirit followed by the Holy Rosary. Discussions are held regarding Legion matters and the meeting is conducted corporate style with minutes and accounts recorded. Besides praying we as apostles are sent out to do a minimum of 2 hours of work during the week, which is mainly visiting our parishioners, specially the sick and the home bound. Legionaries are called to very gently coax and encourage the faithful to pray the Holy Rosary and attend the Holy Mass at least on Sundays. Legionaries also come to the service of people who are sick and are in need of hospitalization. We are called to visit not only the Catholics but even people of other faiths. Legionaries also visit the hospitals and institutions like the Clergy home, All Saints home, Asha Dan and various others. Legionaries are called to do many other works of Charity and Mercy. The juniors are called to do simple works of service in the Church, Sacristy and occasionally visiting along with the Seniors. The main purpose of being a legionary is to serve God under the banner of Mary by Corporal and spiritual works of mercy, to live a holy life and bring others to holiness. Finally Legionaries are called to imitate the virtues of Mary namely humility.
