"Legion of Mary" - Administration

The Administration (Government)


Each branch or unit of the legion of Mary is called "Praesidium". In the Roman Army of the olden days, a part of the army in charge of a particular work was called by the Latin term "Praesidium".

Curia and Comitium

After the establishment of two or more Praesidia in a city or town or district they are under the administrative body called the Comitium.

Mother TeresaThe Administrative Structure of the Legion

Any member below the age of 18 cannot be a member of a curia for adults. If a curia thinks it necessary and deserving it can establish a junior curia under the supervision. It may become necessary grant to a particular curia, the power to supervise one or more Curia's under it, in addition to the usual powers. Such an upper Curia is called "Comitium". It will function like a curia and not as a new administrative body.


A new administrative body called Regia has its administration over an area which is too big for a Comitium but too small for a Senatus.


The administrative body over a state is called Senatus.


It is the administrative council having jurisdiction over the entire legion this central body has the sole right to

  • To enact, change and explain the Legion Lacos in accordance with the teaching of the church.
  • To grant or deny permission to establish Praesidia or any other council in any place of its choice.
  • To decide about each council and its policies.
  • To pass judgements after listening to the problems and complaints of the council.
  • To solve the problems regarding the rights of the members.
  • To decide about the appropriateness of the work and the way in which it has to be done.

The Origin of "The Queen of Love" Curia - Kurusady

During the last few decades St. Antony's Church Kurusady was the head shrine for about 25 parishes. Now it has two sub-stations Vadakkukonam (Annal Nagar) and Vattakkarai.

Earlier the Preasidia from 9 Villages were under "The Queen of Love" Curia - Kurusady, now after the Bifurcation of the parishes this curia functions well with 13 Preasidia under it.

"The Queen of Love" Curia was formed in 18.02.1962 due to the efforts of
Rev. Fr. R. Antonymuthu. The zeal of the youth and the children in the spiritual life led to increase of the members of the curia., so in 15.05.1969 the junior curia was formed.
