Legion of Mary
www.legionofmary.ie Concilium headquarters in Dublin, Ireland
The Legion of Mary was established in Ireland in 1921 and took root in the Lincoln Diocese in 1957. This lay apostolic group assists pastors in performing spiritual works in their parishes. In 2001, the Legion of Mary had 146 active members in twenty praesidia across the Diocese and 2,458 auxiliary members. Legion members visit shut-ins, new-comers, lapsed Catholics, and Catholics in health care institutions, colleges, and correctional centers; assist with RCIA and CCD; maintain literature racks in church; and promote the rosary, Sacred Heart enthronement, Perpetual Adoration, and the Miraculous Medal. They seek union with Mary and imitate her humility and faithfulness in serving Christ.
