THE MOTTO OF THE LEAGUE IS: “CHARITY, WORK, AND LOYALTY”
The great virtue, which speaks of our love of God, neighbor, and self. The object of this virtue is our union with God through love. It is the force by which all acts of good, directed towards ourselves or our neighbors, are performed for the love of God.
This is our service to the church, to one another, and to society, and is one of our objectives. Our charity is put into practice through our various works.
This virtue expresses our attitude towards the teachings of Christ, His Church, and the League’s objectives. It also implies our fidelity and support to other members of our League in terms of our thoughts, words, and deeds.
This is a group of young people devoted to growing their faith and spirituality. They are called to serve the church and others. It is important for the youth to feel integrated in the church and as such they have their own programmes that are aimed at making them feel like they belong.
This group is for women who are not in any sodality but still want to serve the church. They assist the youth in a lot of their activities and support their endeavours.
