Who we are
caritas Christi urget nos
Regnum Christi (Latin for “Kingdom of Christ”) is a Federation (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. Regnum Christi is made up of over 25,000 members throughout 38 countries world-wide.
A brief history of the RC Ontario locality
The first seeds of our locality were planted in 1991 with only 10 members, our first apostolate was initiated in the late 1990’s and apostolates have continued to grow since then. Although we are called 'Ontario' our locality’s geographic territory spans over all Eastern Canada; the members in our diaspora include Cornwall, Quebec, and the Maritimes. The Legionaries of Christ Community was formed in Oakville, Ontario in 2009. Our locality has experienced renewed and steady growth, with teams of perseverance forming with members from Toronto, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, Newmarket, Peel and Halton area.
In April 2020, our local governance changed from having a Local Director and Local Committee to
Local College with a Chair.
The Regnum Christi journey through life
"In the creation, God commanded the plants to bring forth their fruits, each one according to its kind; even so He commands all Christians, who are living plants of the Church, to bring forth their fruits of devotion, each one according to his quality and vocation."
St. Francis de Sales
Our LC community
Driven by the desire of Jesus’ heart to set the world ablaze, the religious priests of the Legionaries of Christ support each other and work in communion with other Regnum Christi members in their mission to form apostles, people who let the love of Christ the King transform their hearts, their families and their world.
