GOVERNANCE OF REGNUM CHRISTI
Regnum Christi is directed by a collegial government through the Territorial Directive College.
Territorial Directive College
On September 15, 2019, the Statutes of the Regnum Christi Federation, the General Regulations, and the Rule of Life for lay members came into effect after being approved by the Holy See. They establish a collegial government for Regnum Christi through a Directive College made up of the directors of the Legionaries of Christ, the Consecrated Women, and the Lay Consecrated of Regnum Christi, as well as a number of lay members.
The Regnum Christi Territorial Directive College for the North American Territory is made up of:
Territorial Plenary Council
The Territorial Directive College is assisted in the exercise of its authority on certain matters by the Territorial Plenary Council. Its collaboration expresses the spirit of communion that characterizes Regnum Christi. In the North American Territory it is made up of:
- The territorial councilors and secretaries of the Legionaries of Christ, the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi, and the Lay Consecrated Men of Regnum Christi
- Two additional lay members appointed by the Territorial Directive College
- The Mission Support Team

Mission Support Team
The Mission Support Team is the work team responsible for implementing the strategies and plans of the Territorial Directive College. The Mission Support Team is committed to working closely with localities and apostolates to provide the guidance, service, and support most needed to move the mission of Regnum Christi forward. The Mission Support Team is comprised of the directors of each of the six territorial departments and led by the Delegate of the Territorial Directive College.
Regnum Christi Local Directors
In localities, Regnum Christi is directed by a local director with their council, or by a college.
The Local Director or Local Directive College directs the activity of Regnum Christi in the locality, accompanies the life and mission of the sections, engages with community superiors and directors, section directors, institutions, and apostolic programs in the preparation and execution of the evangelization plan for the locality.
