The Legion of Mary in St. Ignatius has about 100 members and is made up of seven praesidia (groups): 2 English- speaking, 1 Chinese- speaking and 4 Filipino. We live out the Parish goals by conducting prayers at every meeting, visiting Aged Homes and helping to evangelise by giving out religious books and medals, bringing people to Mass, and speaking to them about the truth of the Catholic Faith.

The Works of the Legion
The Legion sees as its priority the spiritual and social welfare of each individual. The members participate in the life of the parish through visitation of families, the sick, both in their homes and in hospitals and through collaboration in every apostolic and missionary undertaking sponsored by the parish. Every legionary is required to carry out a weekly apostolic work in the spirit of faith and in union with Mary.
“For all states of the laity the perfect example of spiritual and apostolic life is the most Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Apostles, who while leading the life common to all here on earth, one filled with family concerns and labours, was always intimately united with her Son and in an entirely unique way co-operated in the work of the Saviour . . . All should devoutly venerate her and commend their life and apostolate to her maternal care”.
(Vatican II: Decree on the Apostolate of the Laity)

Auxiliary Membership
This membership is open to Priests, Religious and lay people who wish to associate themselves with the Legion by undertaking a service of prayer in its name.
