Regnum Christi

Mission:

Activities:

Meetings are Saturdays at 8:30 am at SEAS or SFA. Mission: REGNUM CHRISTI is an approved Catholic lay movement which helps us to be faithful to our baptismal promises. The group is both active and prayerful and offers an annual women’s silent retreat. Brief daily prayers provide means of growing closer to Christ, other people and one’s self. Regular group meetings and one-on-one dialogues help us stay on track. Our goal is building God’s kingdom on earth, especially in our parish and through support of priests and religious.
