|Legion of Mary|
The Legion of Mary meets each Saturday at 9:45am in the Upper Room.
All are welcome to join us and Fr. Stan for the Devotion to Mary on the first Saturday of the month at 8:15 am before the 9:00 am Mass in the Day Chapel. On all other Saturdays we pray the Holy Rosary for World Peace at 8:40 am in the Day Chapel.
The Legion of Mary was founded in Dublin, Ireland on September 7, 1921. It is a lay Catholic organization whose members now provide service to the Church on a voluntary basis in almost every country in the world. The Legion has been active in the United States since 1931.
The mission of the Legion is to glorify God through the holiness of its members, developed by prayer and active cooperation in the works of Mary and the Church.
The Legion of Mary organization is made up of local chapters or Praesidia. Each Praesidium holds a weekly meeting, where prayer is intermingled with reports and discussion. The Praesidium at St. Elizabeth Seton parish commemorated its 500th meeting in February 2015!
If you wish to join the Legion, you can do so by applying for membership in a Praesidium. The "Our Lady, Mediatrix of all Graces" Praesidium is sponsored by St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Carmel, Indiana. You do not need to be a member of the St. Elizabeth Seton parish to join the Praesidium.
See our Membership page if you would like to understand more about the several ways of participating.

Legion of Mary Traveling the Blessed Mother Statue
Under the recommendation and direction of Fr. Stan (Legion of Mary Spiritual Director) the Traveling Blessed Mother Statue was introduced on October 8. We are inviting families to pray in front of the Blessed Mother statue for one hour per day for one week. (This could be broken into smaller segments if that better suits the family.)
