Legion of Mary 
The Legion of Mary is the largest lay catholic organization in the church, fully dedicated to Our Blessed Mother. Its members commit themselves to praying the Rosary daily, as well as other special prayers. The Active Legion members are committed to community faith-based works and both the active and auxiliary members are committed to their spiritual development.

Parishioners from St. Patrick’s, St. Hyacinth and St. Rocco’s are welcome to join.

If you are unable to commit to attending the weekly meetings, please consider joining the legion as an auxiliary member. 
Auxiliary members commit themselves to the daily recitation of the Rosary for the overall success of the Legion.

Visiting Pilgrim Mary
The Legion of Mary would be delighted to bring the beautiful Blessed Virgin Mary statue to your home for a period of one week. The statue is traditionally installed into your home by recitation of opening prayers and the Rosary. Throughout the week we encourage you to gather friends and family for recitation of the Rosary and other prayers. At the end of the week the Legion will come to uninstall the statue through the recitation of closing prayers.

Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to grow closer to our Blessed Mother.
