Jr. Legion of Mary

The Junior Legion of Mary is a junior branch of the Legion of Mary. Frank Duff founded this organization in 1921 in order to promote personal sanctification and evangelization of the holy Catholic faith.  Our StJB group is open to students grades 1-8, though due to the more formal nature of the meetings, a certain level of maturity is helpful.  Therefore, it is suggested for grades 3-8.

Meetings are weekly on Thursdays after school from 3:30 until 4:30, in the church commons (except on days when there is no school.)  In our meetings, we pray the rosary, the Tessera prayers, and give reports on our assignments.  Assignments are given on a weekly basis.  Students lead school-wide prayer chains, serve as a religious buddy for Kindergarteners, make cards for elderly parishioners and teachers, visited nursing homes, and visited the Cloisters on the Platte.

Jr. League of Mary StJB Sponsor: Mrs. Teresa Rolfson

 Children’s Choir 

Children’s Choir is open to all 3rd-8th grade students in the parish.  We rehearse 2-3 times per month and sing at Mass once per month, on the first Saturday of the month.
