Part of our ‘Christ the King’ tradition in Regnum Christi is to kick-off our Call to Mission Campaign. This is a fundraising initiative to raise funds to support our Legionary brothers and our Consecrated sisters in Regnum Christi. The funds we provide will help support their operational and capital needs both today and in the future. Our campaign goal for 2021 is $15,000.00 and we are hopeful that 100% of our Regnum Christi families will take part in this campaign with whatever size gift they discern they can donate.
