The Regnum Christi, which is Latin for the Kingdom of Christ, family consists in the Legionaries of Christ, the consecrated men and women, diocesan priests, and lay Regnum Christi members. We form one of the new ecclesial movements raised up by the Holy Spirit and approved by the Church to further the work of evangelization.
We are a spiritual family who loves Jesus Christ and what he loves: his Church and souls. We make a commitment to holiness, community, and apostolate, responding to God’s call in our hearts to make building Christ’s Kingdom the central, driving principal of our lives.
The Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi strive to imbue lay Catholics with a passionate love for Christ and the Church and provide them with a spiritual skill set to help them transform the culture around them with the message of the Gospel. To achieve this goal, Regnum Christi in Philadelphia offers personalized formation and accompaniment (the sacraments, spiritual direction, coaching and mentoring, etc.), vibrant faith communities, retreats and formation, education, and outreach programs (see diagram below)
We seek to serve all people and the whole Church, working as Jesus Christ did when he formed a group of apostles and then sent them out to the whole world.
