We are so happy to welcome Lorraine as she made her promise to become a Legionary in our praesidium. A celebratory mass was offered by Father Hugh for this special event. Congratulations, Lorraine!
The members of the Brooklyn and Queens Comitium were welcomed at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Island on Saturday September 6th for a prayer filled day centering on True Devotion to Mary. Three buses carried 150 legionaries including a Junior Praesidium.
On September 3rd, we prayed the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. The Spiritual reading was taken from the Handbook page 101-103 Chapter 16 titled: General Considerations Affecting Both Degrees of Auxiliary Membership. The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh Gillespie about how the Promise emerges from the meeting and how we spend our time is how we spend our lives. The Handbook assignment is Chapter 17 Titled: The Souls of Our Departed Legionaries page 103-105. The Study assignment is Chapter 11 from The Man Called Montfort by E.C. Bolger Page 196-105. Our discussion was planned for our next meeting which will be September 10, 2014 at 7PM.
