In June, the Territorial College for North America approved the addition of three new members to our local college.
We are blessed with the generosity of all those who serve our locality!

Sonja Dalle Ave has been a Regnum Christi member since December 2004. She is now the Women's Section Leadership Team, point person. Sonja has grown a lot in her faith through the ongoing formation opportunities and Spiritual Direction offered by RC. As a wife to Tony and a mother of 3 active sons, and with a busy job, it was difficult in these early days to make the time for team meetings and retreats, but these activities turned out to be true blessings for all her family. Now retired and with all her children grown up, she enjoys having more time to be with Our Lord and more leeway to be active in the movement and in her parish. She treasures the friendships and the team life of her RC group and the support from her local LC Fathers and hopes to do what Christ is asking of her at this time.
