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.
Put briefly, the work of evangelisation is the task of the whole Christ, Head and members. It is an ecclesial event. It is the presence of the Risen Christ acting in and through his members.
The Church is not simply an institution or a thing. It is Someone. It is the person of the Risen Christ living and acting through all the baptised. The whole Church, every member without exception is called to evangelise.
Rev. Fr. Bede McGregor, O.P., Concilium Spiritual Director
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.
