The Legion of Mary in Singapore is celebrating the international movement’s 90th anniversary with activities and events. These aim at recruiting members while igniting Legionaries’ passion for their mission.
Marian-themed talks by priests have started in March. The next talk will be on The Immaculate Conception by Fr Andrew Wong at 4 pm on July 16 at Church of the Holy Spirit.
The schedule of the other talks for the rest of the year will be announced closer towards the dates.
Meanwhile, a travelling exhibition highlighting the movement’s founder Frank Duff and other prominent Legionaries, as well as the work of the movement, is making its rounds of the parishes in Singapore.
The exhibition will be held at the Church of St Bernadette, Church of St Francis of Assisi, Church of the Holy Spirit and Church of Christ the King over the next few weeks.
Other activities include a Legion Seminar in August, a Marian Congress in October, a 90th anniversary Mass and dinner celebration in early September, as well as a Mass to pray for Duff’s beatification.
The first Legion of Mary praesidium (unit) in Singapore was founded in December 1947.
Today, there are 138 praesidia in the Singapore archdiocese with 1,193 active members and 3,026 auxiliary members.
