INTERNATIONAL | WHERE WE ARE
The Legionaries of Christ and the Regnum Christi Movement established themselves in Canada in 1995 with the opening of the novitiate and apostolic school in Cornwall, Ontario in 1995.

Jóvenes en Canada JMJ
Two million young people descended on Rome for World Youth Day 2000.

Members of Regnum Christi founded Clearwater Academy, in Calgary, Alberta. Since then, Legionaries and Regnum Christi members have carried out several programs to assist the Church in Canada through education, evangelization, and the formation of tomorrow´s priests. 

Both the Legionaries and the consecrated women have communities in Montreal, where they serve the local parishes – the consecrated women work with youth and family ministry, and the Legionaries assist the parish priests with the celebration of the sacraments. The Legionaries also have a community in Oakville, near Toronto, where they also help with youth ministry and parish work.

One of the highlights of Regnum Christi work in eastern Canada is the summer Camp Alizé for girls, with a French version in Québec and an English version in Ontario. For boys, there is Camp Caribou, a ‘survivor’ camp on the St. Lawrence River. 

Two priests and two consecrated women also work in Calgary, AB each month, where they help with local Regnum Christi events and provide spiritual services at Clearwater Academy. Regnum Christi members run two medieval-themed summer camps in Alberta each year: Camp Archātheos for boys and Camp Captivenia for girls. During the year, they keep busy with marriage renewal retreats and Challenge and Conquest clubs, among other events.

This is just a taste of how Regnum Christi members are supporting the Catholic Church across Canada – an endeavor which began 20 years ago and continues stronger each year, thanks to the dedication of laypeople, Legionaries, and consecrated members.

From one end of Canada to the other, from Nova Scotia to British Colombia, the Legionaries of Christ and the members of Regnum Christi live out their mission of loving Christ, serving people and building the Church.
