Regnum Christi (Latin for “Kingdom of Christ”) is one Movement (within the Catholic Church) comprised of four vocations: Legionaries of Christ (priestly congregation), Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi, Lay Consecrated Men of Regnum Christi and the Lay Members of Regnum Christi. Regnum Christi has a Christ-Centered spirituality that is lived together in communion with all members (all four vocations), in union with the whole Church, and through a mission to build the kingdom of Christ. Regnum Christi also includes diocesan priests and permanent deacons.
The whole Regnum Christi Movement is made up of 30,000 members throughout 38 countries world-wide working as Jesus did to: Reveal Christ’s love to people, form them as apostles and launch them in their God-given mission to build the Kingdom of Christ.
Apostolic action (also known as apostolate or ministry) involves a wide range of services, educational programs and institutions, and activities that help people develop their Catholic faith and God-given talents. The apostolic action of Regnum Christi aims to bring the light of Christ to souls through missions, retreats, youth work, schools and universities, small groups, personal accompaniment, parishes and online and radio evangelization. Regnum Christi members strive to bring the Gospel to all corners of society, confident in the support of Jesus who said: “I am with you always, until the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). We work personally with people seeking their mission in life, in small faith groups and by providing spiritual experiences that can be life-changing.
Regnum Christi tries to foster in its members a spirit of initiative and a deep love for the Church. It aims to remind them of their baptismal duty to make the faith a key part of all their relationships — in their families, parishes, workplaces and social circles.
