Regnum Christi (Latin for “Kingdom of Christ”) is one Movement, within the Catholic Church, comprised of four vocations: Legionaries of Christ (the 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. The whole Regnum Christi Movement is made up of 30,000 members throughout 38 countries worldwide.
Our mission is to form apostles, Christian leaders, to help the Church build up the Kingdom of Christ. We strive to be witnesses to Christ, living our spirituality and mission as the Holy Spirit intended, with joy, humility, and passion for Jesus Christ.
We focus our mission on spiritual formation through retreats, marriage, youth, and missions.

Regnum Christi has a Christ-centered spirituality that is lived together in communion with all members, in union with the whole Church, and through a mission to build the kingdom of Christ.
Regnum Christi’s mission is to reveal Christ’s love to people, form them as apostles, and launch them in their God-given mission.
Regnum Christi members fulfill their mission through missions, retreats, youth work, schools and universities, small groups, personal accompaniment, parishes, online and radio evangelization and other evangelization work.
The personal experience of Christ’s love produces in the hearts of Regnum Christi members an interior urgency to give themselves to their mission passionately, so as to make his Kingdom present: “The love of Christ impels us” (2 Cor 5:14). This passion results in a way of living that we call Militia Christi.
