For the Centenary of Fatima, the Legion of Mary has acquired a pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima from Portugal which will be travelling around selected parishes in the Melbourne Archdiocese. A plenary indulgence can be gained by visiting a church or shrine where Our Lady's Statue is displayed for public veneration.
The Patricians is a monthly discussion group open to all Catholics. Its aim is to deepen our knowledge of the Catholic Faith and help us to explain it to others, in line with the teachings of the Church.
Each session starts with a prayer. Then a paper or talk (strictly limited to 15 minutes) on the subject for discussion is given by a lay person.This is followed by an orderly discussion of the topic in which all are welcome to participate. After a short break for light refreshments, a second talk is given by the spiritual director, who is present at the whole meeting. The meeting is chaired by a legionary.
Come and see.
On the 7th September, 2013, the Praesidium of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour was 80 years old. We celebrated the occasion on the following day, a Sunday, the 8th September, 2013. If the 8th had been a weekday it would have been designated as the Feast of the Nativity of Our Holy Mother and Queen of the Legion. Father John Walshe, the Parish Priest of St. Patrick and the Holy Angels Church in Mentone celebrated Mass at 11:00 am during which he gave a very insightful homily on the Legion of Mary and how well it operated in his parish caring for souls.
