A three-day spiritual renewal event is planned to celebrate the anniversary of the formation and foundation of the Legion of Mary in the archdiocese of Dublin, Ireland on Sept 7, 1921.
The Legion of Mary movements are established in every parish of the Catholic church.
It was founded in Dublin by Frank Duff at the age of 32, with strong and powerful players of a small band of women under the spiritual guidance of the parish priest.
Duff was greatly inspired to walk to Jesus by walking in the footsteps of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Earthly Mother of our Lord Jesus.
