Legion of Mary

Who Are We?

The Legion of Mary is a worldwide organization of Catholic men and women who wish to grow in holiness and live out their baptismal call to spread the Reign of Christ.

What Do We Do?

Legionaries balance prayer with apostolic work, performed in union with Mary, Mother of the Church. We assist our pastor in ministering to the Mystical Body of Christ by performing various acts of service, including: visiting the sick and homebound, conducting Communion Services in nursing homes, detention ministry, teaching religious education, and distributing Catholic literature.

When Do We Meet?

Active Legionaries attend a weekly meeting to pray, discuss, and share work reports. There are two adult Legion of Mary groups at St. Michael’s. Both meet on Wednesdays in the Ministry Center: one in the morning after the 7:30 a.m. Mass, the other in the evening at 6:30 p.m.

Guests or inquiring new members are always welcome to attend a meeting! We have a “trial period” so you can get to know what we’re all about before you decide if you’d like to join.
