Join us at CCA as we welcome members of The Legion of Mary- Northern Ohio,
an organization committed to the spiritual formation of its members, who in turn reach out to the world through spiritual works of mercy.
The Legion of Mary is the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church, with well over 3 million active members in about 170 countries of the world. The Legion of Mary is an organization committed to the spiritual formation of its members, who in turn reach out to the world through spiritual works of mercy. The Legion of Mary recently celebrated its centennial anniversary. The first meeting of the Legion of Mary took place in Myra House, Frances Street, Dublin, Ireland, on September 7th, 1921. The Legion of Mary has been active in the United States since 1931, has been approved by the last 8 Popes, and was endorsed by the Second Vatican Council. The main purpose of the Legion of Mary is to give glory to God through the sanctification of its members.
Active members meet once a week for prayer, planning and discussion. Then they do two hours of assigned work each week under the guidance of their spiritual director. Members recite the Catena Legionis prayer daily.
The Legion of Mary is open to all Catholics who faithfully practice their religion, who are animated by the desire to participate in the Church's evangelistic mission through membership in the Legion, and who are prepared to fulfill each and every duty which active membership in the Legion involves.
