Legion of Mary

The Legion of Mary is an international Catholic lay organisation, which aims to collaborate in the Church's mission of evangelisation. Its members engage in the direct religious apostolate, especially towards those most remote from the Church's influence. In the spiritual formation of its members the Legion places much emphasis on the doctrine of the Mystical Body of Christ, on seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and on the performance of apostolic work in union with Mary.

Members place themselves at the service of Mary, and wish to help her in her mission as "Mother of the Church."

The Legion of Mary has as a high ideal the sanctification of its members. Through the carrying out of a regular work of mercy and attendance at the weekly meeting, members strive to grow in holiness. The founder of the Legion of Mary, Servant of God Frank Duff wrote a booklet called  Can We Be Saints? when he was just 26 years old. As well he wrote most of the Legion Handbook  which is one of the great spiritual classics of the 20th Century.

Saint Vincent de Paul

The Society was founded by Frederic Ozanam in 1833 in France. The first conference started in Australia at Saint Francis, Melbourne in April 1854, since then, local conferences have been established in many suburbs and regional areas. Our conference at St Peter’s Clayton was founded in June 1957 after a call from our Parish Priest Father Frank Lombard. Since then our conference has helped the needy people of Clayton, and part of East Oakleigh. Our conference meets fortnightly from February to December. New members are always welcome, there is no membership fee.

If you are a practicing Catholic and may be interested in becoming a member, you can leave your phone number or home address with one of our members at the piety stall and our President will contact you.

The mission of Saint Vincent de Paul members is to live by the Gospel by serving Christ in the poor with love, respect, justice, hope, joy, and to shape a more just and compassionate society.
