One-Day Legion Congress
What is it? A day long discussion of the Legion System, Devotions, Works, Principles and Ideals, divided into sessions held by a Curia (or two small Curiae). ALL active legionaries in the directly attached praesidia are invited to participate if they can.
Attached comitia and curia can send representatives and in their turn run a Congress for their own praesidia members.
This year’s theme is Attractive Meetings. What’s included?
Mass, Legion prayers, adult education by group discussion, lunch.
(See the reverse for what it is not)
Why go? To inspire, to train and to improve Legion spirituality and apostolates in harmony with Our Lord, Our Lady, and Her Legion around the world!
Let’s learn to be more attractive for the Church and the Legion!
Who’s invited? Active Legionaries of Mary!
