The Lay Movement

REGNUM CHRISTI LAY MEMBERS

Regnum Christi members come from dozens of countries, speak many different languages, represent multiple cultures and hail from a wide spectrum of economic-social status.  The majority of the members are lay people — young and old, single and married, men and women — who seek to live out their baptismal commitment to holiness and apostolate more intensely.  What all the members share in common is a love for Christ, a dedication to the New Evangelization and a belief that they are responsible to evangelize the culture and balance personal spiritual formation with apostolic zeal.

The Greater Charlotte, Triad and Upstate South Carolina Regnum Christi Section is active throughout the Diocese of Charlotte and the Diocese of Charleston. Through weekly encounters, retreats, and apostolic work within the local parishes they serve, the members make a commitment to holiness, community, and apostolate, responding to God’s call in our hearts to make building Christ’s Kingdom the central, driving principal of our lives.

How to Join Regnum Christi

Do you want to go deeper in your relationship with God, explore your Catholic Faith and change the culture around you by living the mission you were given at baptism? So do Regnum Christi Members!  Following the call to Regnum Christi means knowing God’s profound love for you and deepening your love for Him, striving for authentic holiness in your own life and sharing Christ’s joy with others in evangelization, all as a lay Catholic in the world and in your parish. In Regnum Christi, we awaken the individual and the family to their mission in life and in the Church. We work as Jesus did. We show others His love, form apostles and send them out to help build the Kingdom of Christ. Regnum Christi isn’t a service organization or a prayer group. Membership is a vocation that calls us to spiritual commitments and growth, combined with apostolic action to evangelize the world.

We serve vast numbers of people globally through our various outreach efforts, schools, programs and missions. Learn more about who we are and what we do.

Regnum Christi is a Spiritual Family. That means we support each other, encourage each other, and live our Christian lives connected to God together. Walk the path of discernment with someone who is living the call and know you will be welcomed into a warm community of people who are looking forward to meeting you. A Regnum Christi member’s life is an adventure and a mission. It means following the Crucified Christ with love, and being a part of something bigger than yourself. It’s allowing God to touch the world through you and finding yourself changed in the process. It’s loving the Church and living the Joy of the Gospel.
