Junior Legion of Mary

The Junior Legion of Mary is an organization for the spiritual development of persons under 18 years of age. Each group, which is called a praesidium, is run under the supervision of a Senior Legion of Mary Praesidium and the guidance of a spiritual director, who is usually a priest or deacon. Primarily, the purpose is to train and spiritualize the young members. In a short time, they will take their place as lay apostles of Christ doing the work as Senior Legion of Mary members.

Each member must do at least one hour of work each week. This work is assigned at the weekly meeting which all members must attend. Our Junior Legion members are involved in the following types of apostolic works: Pilgrim Statue Visits; Choir; Serving Mass; visiting children in a hospital or in their homes; helping at home and at school with classmates; distribution of Miraculous Medals; and, inviting and bringing young children to Holy Mass.

The Junior Praesidium meets every Friday evening from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm, in the Father McGivney Room on the lower level of the Parish Center. Two Senior Legion of Mary members are assigned to oversee these meetings.
