INTERNATIONAL | WHERE WE ARE
The Regnum Christi Movement was founded in the Philippines in 2001 with the arrival of a missionary couple.

Mons. Ramon Argüelles y misiones médicas en Filipinas
Bishop Ramon Argüelles and Medical Missions in the Philippines.

Since then, Regnum Christi has served the archdioceses of Manila and Lipa, and the dioceses of Parañaque, Pasig, and Cubao with evangelization and humanitarian missions, such as the Helping Hands medical missions. Regnum Christi members with legal expertise have also organized Legal Missions to provide free legal counsel to those in need.

Working with the youth has been a priority since the beginning. In 2004, the first Challenge Club for girls was launched, and in 2005, the first ConQuest Club was started for boys. Both stand out for the formation they give to the adolescents.

In August of 2007, Legionaries and Regnum Christi lay people opened the Philippines´ first international Catholic school, Everest Academy. As it continues to grow, the school will provide boys and girls from grades 1 through 12 with an education based on the method of integral formation used in Legionary schools worldwide.

The Philippines already has several other youth apostolates up and running, including CKNet, which provides spiritual formation to boys and girls from ages 5 to 10, and Pure Fashion, which helps high school girls grow in virtue and character formation through modest fashion shows. The Christian Life apostolate is coming soon.

The Regnum Christi youth sections have launched various apostolates and missionary projects at the service of the poor and of orphaned children, especially through the MissionYouth and Living Dreams (Making Dreams Come True) apostolates. 

In September 2008, Manila´s first Mano Amiga school opened its doors for kindergarten students, with plans to expand every year.

The Philippines also has the constant presence of coworkers, as well as a Legionary community and a center of Regnum Christi consecrated women.

Another beautiful initiative by Regnum Christi members is the construction of the St Mary’s Catholic Center, a parish mission center founded for catechesis and evangelization of the local Filipino people. St Mary´s was solemnly blessed by Most Reverend Filomeno Bactol, DD, Bishop of the diocese of Naval on September 8, 2008, the feast of the birth of Mary.
