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.
In fact, if joy comes from salvation, from closeness to God and the experience of grace, then no mere human being has ever rejoiced more than Mary. ‘Rejoice, full of grace, the Lord is with you.’ (Lk 1:28)
No one was ever full of grace like Mary, since only she was immaculately conceived; and no one was ever closer to God than she who bore the Son of God in her womb.
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.
