The Legion of Mary is the largest apostolic organization of lay people in the Catholic Church.  Our main purpose is to give glory to God through the sanctification of its members. Our key concerns are to intensify Catholic life, reclaiming fallen away Catholics and seeking converts.  The Legion of Mary has three types of membership: Active members perform 2 hours of legionary work weekly; Auxiliary members support the work of the active members through the daily prayers of the Rosary and the Legion Prayers (Tesserae); and Junior Members may attend a junior meeting after they make their first Communion until 18 years of age.  Members become instruments of the Holy Spirit through a balanced program of prayer and service.  Works include evangelization, prison ministry, home visitation of the sick or aged, Nursing Home visitation, religious education, Pilgrim Virgin Visit Statue rotations at homes, Home Enthronement, and meeting the other spiritual needs of the parish.

The Legion of Mary was founded in Dublin, Ireland, by Frank Duff.  He formed the first praesidium (parish unit), of the Legion of Mary on September 21, 1921.

Our praesidium, named Our Lady of Fair Love, was founded on Aug. 5, 1992.  

Meetings are held every Tuesday night at the PLC Room 2 from 5 to 6:30 pm. The meetings consist of reciting the Rosary, readings from the Handbook with comments from the spiritual director, Tessera Prayers and weekly activity report of each legionnaire on their spiritual works.
