KOTA KINABALU – Over 85 members of the Legion of Mary (LOM) attended a half-day recollection organised by the LOM Kota Kinabalu Comitium on 19 May 2018 at the Sacred Heart Parish Centre here.

Father Paul Lo, adviser to the lay movements in the archdiocese, facilitated the recollection.

He gave two talks: Mary as Disciple and Mary as Model of the Church.

The recollection is part of the activities of the Legion of Mary founded by Frank Duff in Ireland in 1921.  It came to North Borneo in 1950 through Mill Hill Father Desmond McLindon.  Its objective is to glorify God through the sanctification of the members by prayer and active cooperation, under ecclesiastical guidance, in advancing the reign of God through Mary.

Among the other spiritual activities are the Acies (where the members renew their consecration to Mary) on or near March 25 (Annunciation) and the Annual General Reunion on or near Dec 8 (Immaculate Conception).

The KK Comitium has four curiae (72 presidia) in the archdiocese.
