Our parish "Legion of Mary" group is looking for new members. We meet most Saturday mornings @ 9AM. We pray the rosary together and report on our ministry of service. This includes Eucharistic visitations of the sick, aged or homebound parishioners. We hope that You would consider this Vocational Calling. The Legion of Mary is the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church. For more information contact: Sara Roberts 615-226-0091
THE LEGION OF MARY WAS FOUNDED IN DUBLIN, IRELAND ON 7 SEPTEMBER 1921. IT IS A LAY CATHOLIC ORGANISATION WHOSE MEMBERS ARE GIVING SERVICE TO THE CHURCH ON A VOLUNTARY BASIS IN ALMOST EVERY COUNTRY.
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.
St. Joseph Church's Legion of Mary advances the reign of Christ through prayer and active service to others. They visit the sick and shut-ins, ministers to fallen away Catholics and assists those who are in bereavement. Meetings are held after 8:00 mass on Saturday mornings.
