A Franciscan Parish in the Archdiocese of Detroit

Legion of Mary

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.

Meeting:  Every Tuesday from 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm at the Duns Scotus room. We begin and end by praying the Tessera and the Holy Rosary. We discuss assignments and assigned handbook readings. The President or designee give the allocutio (like a homily) taken from the Legio Mariae handbook or related topics or topics related to our faith.

Every 2nd Saturday of the month, the officers attend the monthly Regia meeting currently being held at St Rene Goupil Church in Sterling Heights.
