Horacio Gomez

Born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, Horacio Gomez has been a member of Regnum Christi for 28 years. As a young boy, he attended Cumbres Guadalajara, and through this Regnum Christi school, was introduced to and joined ECYD. After becoming a member of Regnum Christi in 1996, Horacio gave one year of service as a coworker (now RC Mission Corps) in Madrid, Spain. He went on to cofound the first ECYD clubs (Club Forja and Club Sherpa) in Guadaljara, and has served as a team leader, section director, and RC director in his current locality of Dallas, Texas. Horacio is one of the five elected lay delegates for the upcoming Regnum Christi General Convention to be held in Rome at the end of April this year.


In 2003, Horacio moved to San Diego, California, where he obtained his master’s degree, and in 2007, he settled in Dallas, working for Flextronics (now Flex, a global manufacturing company) and eventually Amazon, where he worked as the Head of Global Supply Chain for the drone delivery program. During his work assignments, Horacio had the opportunity to live for periods of over six months in places like Hungary, China, Malaysia, and Brazil, and experience the Regnum Christi charism across of a variety of different cultures.


Horacio is currently one of two appointed lay Regnum Christi members serving on the North American Plenary Council, which assists the Territorial Directive College. In this role, he works to support different initiatives at the territory level, like the Locality Evangelization Guidelines, as well as supporting localities in the discernment and implementation of their evangelization plans. Horacio has spent the last 10 years overseeing several different apostolates through the Marian Center of Dallas, like the Marian Minute which provides an online space to spend a minute in prayer with Mary, and leading and organizing pilgrimages to Marian shrines around the world.


The preparation for the General Convention has been carried out in three phases that shift the emphasis from the local to the territorial and, finally, to the general level, culminating in the upcoming General Convention. Horacio is looking forward to witnessing how the Holy Spirit will be guiding the discernment within Regnum Christi at the international level over these days in Rome.


“I can’t wait to see how the Holy Spirit ignites all the hearts of the delegates to take RC where God wants, and to see what he is expecting from us in the mission of evangelization!”


Horacio and his wife, Luisa, live in Dallas, Texas, and have four children: Horacio, Pablo, Maria Jose, and baby Nicolas. Horacio (age 6) attends The Highlands School, a Regnum Christi school in Irving, and Pablo (age 4) and Maria Jose (age 3) attend a Montessori school part time. They love hiking and spending time together as a family.

The members of Regnum Christi, represented at the General Convention by elected delegates including Legionaries of Christ, Consecrated Women of Regnum Christ, and lay Regnum Christi members, are impelled by the personal experience of Christ’s love, feel the inner urgency to make his Kingdom present, give witness to what they have lived and experienced, and thus seek to respond to the needs of the world and of the Church.


The Regnum Christi General Convention, as an event of the Spirit, involves three actions: illumination, discernment and action. As an event of the Spirit, synodal, Eucharistic, and prayerful, the convention should illuminate Christian apostolic life, as well as conclude with concrete decisions on the life and mission of Regnum Christi.; it is about letting the Spirit blow on our embers and fan the fire of love, light and joy of the Gospel in us.


The General Convention is a strong moment in the life of the Kingdom – a Eucharistic, communitarian event, of union of each and everyone in the Body of Christ. It is about praying together, united in one faith and one mission, and receiving a Word from God about the needs of the Church and the world, with the intention of doing the will of the Father at this moment in history and from the Regnum Christi charism. The General Convention, whose theme is Discerning & Living the Mission Together, will begin on April 29, 2024, and is expected to last six days. To find out more, visit
