Weekly Regnum Christi Meetings
One of the specific activities Regnum Chrisit offers for the formation and perseverance of its members, is the weekly Encounter with Christ meetings. The purpose of the meeting is to help members meet the living Christ more intensely each day. By meeting as a group and applying what we read and meditate on in the Gospel, by analyzing our personal fidelity to apostolic and spiritual commitments, and by contemplating contemporary occurrences in the light of the Gospel, we come to recognize Christ walking by our side.
