In the Allocutio, Rev. Fr. William Ojulo, Spiritual Director of Tororo Comitium emphasised (basing on the booklet Some Handbook Reflections, Attendance at Council Meetings Pg 41) that every member of the Legion of Mary MUST belong to the Praesidium. Officers MUST fulfil their obligations of attending higher Council meetings and thus their meeting time must never collide with that of a higher Council. Members are also encouraged to attend the higher Council as they learn a lot, are able to take part in extension, and can be officers among others.
In the Correspondence received from Concilium, we were informed that this website is now listed on the Concilium Website. Let us always share the information here to help in learning about the Legion of Mary.
