Junior Legion of Mary
Leader: Sandra Dinan
The Junior Legion of Mary meets every Saturday morning in the parish hall and is open to young men and women ages 7-18. The primary goal of the Legion of Mary is to help its members grow in holiness. The Junior Legion assists others through spiritual works of mercy. Juniors are asked to undertake one hour of apostolic work in service to Jesus through Mary during the course of the upcoming week. Juniors may participate in group assignments or individual assignments. Here are some examples of what Juniors are doing here in Ave Maria:
