The motto of the Legion is the sanctification of the members and reaching out to others in a
spirit of faith in Christ through devotion to the Blessed Mother. The works include visitation
of homes, hospitals and nursing homes, prisons, the formation of young people in their
faith, distribution of Catholic literature, facilitating discussion groups and conferences. The
Legion also has two Hostels in Dublin, one for homeless men and one for homeless women.
Members meet weekly for prayer, planning and discussion in a family setting. Members
complete two hours of definite work each week in pairs and under the guidance of their
Spiritual Director approved by the Parish Priest.
Visitors may attend a meeting and are welcome to say the rosary with us and prospective
members may attend for up to 3 months before deciding to join up.
Realising the necessity for a strong support of prayer, the Legion has auxiliary members, who associate themselves with the Legion by undertaking a service of prayer in its name. These members are provided with the Tessera or Legion prayer card and are invited to special events chiefly the Acies ceremony in March each year by Legion members who visit them regularly.
The Legion circulates a magazine called the Maria Legionis which relates news from around the world and stories of the Legion from past and present.
