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.
At the centre of evangelisation is Jesus Christ in his mysteries by which he saved us.
His incarnation and nativity, life in Nazareth, public life with his teaching and miracles, his institution of the Church, his paschal mystery of suffering, death and resurrection, his glorious ascension and his sending of the Holy Spirit on his first disciples - this is the Good News of salvation which the priest proclaims.
His Eminence, Francis Cardinal Arinze, Retired Prefect, Congregation for Divine Worship, Vatican : Homily
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.
