Due to the COVID-19 lockdown in New Zealand in 2021, the Legion of Mary centenary celebration began with the praying of the Rosary on 7 – 8 September 2021 on ZOOM. Rosaries were offered for the Centenary of the Legion and in celebration of the feast of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary respectively. When the lockdown restrictions were finally lifted in 2022 the NZ Senatus decided to hold its major celebration as planned on Saturday 18th June 2022.

The legion prayers were recited and there was ample time for fellowship over meals and drinks.
