A spiritual family and an apostolic body
made up of four vocations…
We recognize it as God’s plan that the Legionaries of Christ, the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi, the Lay Consecrated Men of Regnum Christi and the associated faithful live in a profound communion and that we are to be to the love of Jesus Christ by the unity and charity among us, and through co-responsibility and complementarity. (SRCF 6)
...with a shared mission
All the members of Regnum Christi and the institutions that comprise it have the same charism, the same spirituality, and the same mission, to which each one contributes by living their specific identity and vocation.

What are the vocations in Regnum Christi?
There is a relationship of complementarity and co-responsibility among the different RC vocations and their unique ways of living the shared spirituality and mission.
RC Lay members live their lay vocation and baptismal commitments in the midst of the secular world. They extend Christ’s presence and seek to transform temporal realities with the message of the Gospel, especially in their family life, professional life, and life in the society they live in. They let themselves be permeated by Christ’s love for humanity and bring their apostolic zeal to life through prayer.
Through their religious consecration, the Legionaries contribute the testimony of their self-giving to Jesus Christ and their complete availability for the fulfillment of the common mission. By their condition as priests, they make present Christ the Priest and the Good Shepherd through preaching, administering the sacraments and spiritual guidance.
By living their feminine identity and the gift of their lay consecration in a total and exclusive self-giving to the love of Christ, the Consecrated Women are signs of the Kingdom in the midst of temporal realities; they promote and safeguard communion; they go out to encounter people in the concrete realities of their life; and they undertake the actions that most contribute to establishing Christ’s Kingdom.
Lay Consecrated Men live the mystery of Christ consecrated to the Father and close to men and women, his brothers and sisters, as just another member of his People, proclaiming the Kingdom to them by the offering of their life, their words, and their work. Through their secular consecration and by the prophetic witness of being in the world without being of the world they evangelize the world around them.
