The Legion of Mary – Centenary 2021— Evangelisation in Action

We are fortunate in our parish to have a small but very devoted group of legionnaires, who meet regularly and carried out the mission and ministry of the Legion, quietly and discreetly where it is most needed. It is appropriate that we mark the centenary of this very Irish organisation, now a worldwide movement, founded by Frank Duff here in Dublin one hundred years ago. In going so we also honour the memory of the many people, men and women, who have carried out the task of evangelisation as members of the Legion of Mary, including many in our own parish.

 

What the Legion does

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. The Legion sees as its priority the spiritual and social welfare of each individual. The members participate in the life of the parish through visitation of families, the sick, both in their homes and in hospitals and through collaboration in every apostolic and missionary undertaking sponsored by the parish. Every legionary is required to carry out a weekly apostolic work in the spirit of faith and in union with Mary.

See the newsletter (25/09/2021) for more information on the Legion of Mary.

 

The six lectures given at the 2020 Scripture Summer School on The Old Testament/ Hebrew Bible are now accessible through the parish website.  The summer school programme entitled “Vision 2020:  Faith into the Future” is available by clicking here.  We would like to thank Dr Jessie Rogers (Pontifical Univsity,  St. Patrick’s College Maynooth) for her support in enabling the presentation of these lectures on the parish website.  The themes of the six lectures are shown in the following screen snip of a slide from lecture 1 (00m:59s).
