PRIESTS THIS YEAR
The Legionaries of Christ are a Roman Catholic religious congregation of priests and seminarians and part of the Regnum Christi Federation. We live in communities and make vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Our mission is to form apostles, catholic leaders at the service of the church.
Driven by the desire of Jesus’ heart to set the world ablaze, the priests of the Legionaries of Christ support each other and work in communion with other Regnum Christi members (Consecrated Women, Lay Consecrated Men and lay members of Regnum Christi) in their mission to reveal Christ’s love to people, form them as apostles, and launch them in their God-given mission in life and in the Catholic Church.
NOVITIATE AND COLLEGE
Having an enterprising spirit at the service of the new evangelization Legionaries go out as missionaries in today’s world. With great charity, joy and zeal, they invite people into the adventure of living for Christ and transforming the culture around them through youth work, education, parishes, missions, the sacraments, and spiritual direction.
A Legionary of Christ is formed to be both contemplative and apostolic. In their mission of forming apostles, Christian leaders at the service of the Church, over 1,500 Legionaries of Christ throughout the world make present the mystery of Christ gathering the Apostles around him, revealing to them the love of his heart, forming them and sending them out to collaborate with him in building up his Kingdom (see Mark 3:13-14; Matthew 10:5-10; 28:18-20; CLC 4)
