The Legion of Mary
The Legion of Mary was founded in Dublin by Frank Duff on 7 September 1921. It is now established in one hundred and eighty seven countries worldwide. It is a lay Catholic organisation whose members give service to the Church on a voluntary basis.
Each unit of the Legion of Mary is known as a praesidium and it holds a weekly meeting.
In Westport there are two Legion of Mary groups. The women's group meets on Monday evenings 7.00 - 8.00 p.m. in the Parish Centre, and the men's group meets on Tuesday evenings 7.00 - 8.00 p.m. in the Parish Centre. New members are always welcome.
