Legion of Mary

This Parish Marian Movement gathers on Tuesday at the Ned Kenny Centre after the morning Mass. The group, as part of their mission, prays the Holy Rosary, visits the sick, and brings the pilgrim image of Mary to families who would request the presence of Our Lady in their homes. For those interested to  join the group, please contact the Parish Office.
