THE LEGION OF MARY Work Overseas
Recent reports of the Legion of Mary's work in Australia show that the efforts to cope with the problem of children attending non-Catholic schools are meeting with success. Good results are also coming from hard work in Hobart, where a number of people who had not been attending to their duties for years, were brought to the missions through Legionary efforts.
In New Zealand, two new Praesidia have been started, one composed entirely of men.
In the Bronx area of New York a branch of white and coloured Legionaries is working among the coloured population of the City.
Encouraging reports of Legionary work for the Church also come from Canada and India where, again, Europeans and Indians are working in perfect harmony.
In Cape Town inaugural meetings of several Praesidia have been arranged.
Four Legionaries of Mary were recently received by the Bishop of Han Yang, who said that he considered the Legion would prove a wonderful auxiliary to the Church in China.
