The Legion of Mary is a lay Catholic organisation whose members are giving service
to the Church on a voluntary basis in almost every country.
THE LEGION OF MARY PRAESIDIUM
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. The unit of the Legion of Mary is called a praesidium, which holds a weekly meeting, where prayer is intermingled with reports and discussion. Persons who wish to join the Legion must apply for membership in a Praesidium.
