The Legion of Mary Child Safeguarding Policy aims to do everything
possible to provide a safe environment for children and young people
where they are cherished and encouraged to become involved in the life
of our Church.
Without the Eucharist there is no Church. The Church cannot be reduced to being just a group of like-minded persons who profess a common ideology or who think that we should somehow be good and lead a good life.
The Church is especially the communion of those who share in prayer, in charity and in the breaking of bread.
It is the place where we grow in the likeness of Jesus as we encounter his saving power present in the Eucharist until the end of time.
Most Reverend Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin
The Legion of Mary is a lay apostolic association of Catholics who, with the sanction of the Church and under the powerful leadership of Mary Immaculate, Mediatrix of All Graces, serve the Church and their neighbour on a voluntary basis in about 170 countries. With the approval and support of the Popes and a great many Bishops, Priests and Religious, as well as the prayers and efforts of legionaries, the Legion, by the grace of God, has grown into a worldwide organisation with several million members.
