Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary was founded in Dublin, Ireland on 7th September 1921. It is a lay Catholic organisation whose members are giving service to the church on a voluntary basis in almost every country. It is a world-wide apostolate of Catholic men and women who place themselves under the banner of Mary, Queen of the Legion. Their purpose remains for the glory of God and the salvation of souls.

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 by the parish.

The group comes together each week for prayer, discussions, pastoral reporting and spiritual formation. They perform their apostolic work under the guidance of a Spiritual Director. As Legionaries, the members try to perform at least two hours a week of apostolic work, such as visiting homes of new parishioners, shut-ins and those who have ceased to practice their Catholic Faith.

Other works include home visitation within the parish boundaries, visiting hospitals, nursing homes and running spiritual groups for the youth, etc.

The Legionaries also help in ascertaining if any sick parishioners are in need of any of the sacraments e.g. anointing of the sick, Reconciliation and Holy Communion. This is an important part of their ministry.

Divine Mercy Devotions

Ministries of Divine Mercy were founded as a community outreach ministry for our impoverished brothers and sisters. We truly feel that God's love through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit has helped found Ministries of Divine Mercy through us as his servants.

We work for the humanity and dignity of others less fortunate, and to bring faith, hope and love in God to the poor and deprived, the abandoned, the widowed and the orphaned.

Holy Hour – Adoration

Through time spent with Christ in Adoration, it can become the most powerful, joyful, peaceful and healing experience we could ever encounter. An uninterrupted hour of prayer and meditation, in the presence of Our Lord, reserved in the Tabernacle.
