Legionaries from St. Joseph parish gave their annual report on Our Lady of Carmel praesidium at our April meeting.  This hard-working praesidium, with 9 active members and 56 auxiliary members, is directed by Deacon McBride and Father Joe McMahon. 
Here's a glimpse of their Legion works from 2010:
  • Visitations to 6 nursing homes, 2 hospitals, 2 assisted living centers, and Alive Hospice
  • Ash Wednesday and Good Friday services held at nursing homes
  • 40 Days for Life, 40 Days of Adoration for Life, Rally for Life, in addition to weekly prayer at abortion center
  • Why Catholic? adult faith formation class conducted
  • Information table about the Legion set up each May and October
  • Sacred Heart Enthronements when requested
  • Prayer at wakes, funerals, and follow-up visits with family
  • Sacramentals provided to each newly baptized baby
  • Copies of the Catechism provided to each RCIA participant
  • Participation in the Divine Mercy Sunday
  • Junior Praesidium at St. Joseph School
It is so inspiring to see what one dedicated praesidium can accomplish in a year!
