75th Anniversary of the Legion of Mary in Ontario
Marilyn mentioned that one of our Legion Pillars, Dorothy Harris of Morning Star Praesidium, Annunciation of the Lord Parish, was in the Legion since 1933. In fact When Dorothy joined the Legion in London England it was Frank Duff who opened her Praesidium which coincidentally was also called Morning Star. After lunch, members of Our Lady of Guadalupe Praesidium of the Good Shepherd Parish sang the song "Our lady of Guadalupe" This Praesidium is indeed the "new kid on the block".
It was established by Jennifer Snell formerly of Morning Star and members held their first meeting October 2 of this year. It was a wonderful afternoon and when the Kingston visitors were getting ready to make their way back home, Marilyn gave them copies of the Legion songs to sing on the bus. But before the bus left Marilyn grabbed her guitar, boarded the bus and gave them a great send off by leading "All Is In the Hands of Mary" as everyone happily joined in. Thank you to all who made this such a joyous day and thank you Mary!!!
