Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary is an association of Catholic men and women who, with the sanction of the Church and under the powerful leadership of Mary Immaculate, Mediatrix of All Graces, have formed themselves into a Legion for service in the warfare which is perpetually being waged by the Church against the forces of evil.

The Legion of Mary was founded by Frank Duff in Dublin. His idea was to help Catholic laypeople fulfill their baptismal promises and be able to live their dedication to the Church in an organised structure, supported by fraternity and prayer.

The Legion's aims are to:

  • Increase the personal holiness of its members through the imitation of the virtues of Mary.
  • Foster a deeper devotion to Mary among all people.
  • Undertake various apostolic works.


In Surry Hills the Legion of Mary meets in the Parish Centre each Saturday morning at 10am.  During the week, members do some door-knocking in St Peter's parish and home visits.
