The Regina Cordium Praesidium of the Legion of Mary was formally established on January 8, 2014, with the making of the Legion Promise by our spiritual director, Fr. Hugh Gillespie, SMM, and our first four members. Acting President Tinamarie Aleixo of the Patchogue Curia presided at the meeting and Fr. Everett Mary Brown, SMM, the spiritual director for the Rockville Center Comitium, delivered the allocutio. Fr. Hugh presided at a Mass of thanksgiving immediately following the Praesidium meeting. After Mass, we gathered in the large dining room of the Montfort Center to celebrate the establishment of our praesidium.
Congratulations to our founding members:

Mary Immaculate, Regina Cordium, pray for us!
