You are invited to participate in our Regnum Christi Locality’s Holy Week Missions. As you may be aware, there are three groups forging forward to bring the love of Christ to those in need this Holy Week.

I pray that your family will join with more than one mission activity this Holy Week. “And the king will answer them, truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me” (Matthew 25: 40).


To be involved in missions is an active way to bring Christ to others. Let us go and live out the Gospel.
