If I were asked what difference has my association with, and membership of, the Legion of Mary meant to me, I would say that it has given me an awareness of my responsibility to share in the mission of the Church. Through a study of the Handbook and through regular attendance at Patrician meetings it has given me some knowledge of what it means to be a Catholic.

Legion of Mary Child Safeguarding Policy
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.
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.
