"When two or more praesidia have been established in any city, town, or district, a governing body termed the Curia should
be set up. The Curia shall be composed of all the officers (Spiritual Directors included) of the praesidia in its area.
Where it is found necessary to confer on a Curia, in addition to its own proper functions, certain powers of superintendence
over one or several Curiae, such higher Curia shall be styled more particularly a Comitium.
The Comitium is not a new
council. It continues to act as a Curia in respect of its own area and to govern directly its own praesidia. In addition it
supervises one or more Curiae."
From the Handbook of the Legion of Mary pages 161-162
