The Legion of Christ was founded in 1941 in Mexico, and the Regnum Christi Movement was founded in 1959. The work that the Legion and Regnum Christi have done in Mexico is considerable. It covers areas like: education, complete pastoral care for the Mayan zone of the state of Quintana Roo, services to the dioceses through programs like the Full-time Lay Missionaries, evangelization missions, care for the most needy, promotion of the family, youth formation, and the spreading of Christian values and culture in society.

On January 3rd of 1941, the apostolic school of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was founded in Mexico City. The Legion of Christ was born in the state of Michoacán, with the first group of 13 boys.

Thirteen years later, the Legion set its first apostolic work in motion: the Cumbres Institute, founded in 1954 in Mexico City. It was followed by the foundation of Anahuac University on its provisional campus in 1964; by the Irish Institute, also in Mexico City, in 1966; and by the first Mano Amiga School, also in 1966. In 1968, Anahuac University opened its doors on its definitive campus in the Lomas de Tecamachalco area of Mexico City.

From that date on, the chronology of events is too densely packed to record: it fills up quickly with cities, names, apostolates… It seems that a volcano of generosity exploded in the hearts of hundreds and thousands of Mexican lay people. Thanks to them, Regnum Christi and the Legion of Christ are now extended throughout the length and breadth of the Mexican Republic. Not only have the aforementioned schools and works grown and multiplied on the map of the country, but new initiatives have sprung up in the most varied fields of apostolate: youth, family, childhood, mass media, evangelization, works of Christian charity for the needy, clubs for adolescents, Youth for the Third Millennium and Missionary Families for the Third Millennium; NET, School of the Faith, Full-time Lay Missionaries, ANSPAC, Mexican Family, the Alpha & Omega clinics, apostolic schools for the formation of minor seminarians… and since the 1990s, there is now a novitiate in the city of Monterrey.

Mexico continues to be the “pioneer” country in the service that the Legion and Regnum Christi wish to offer to the Church’s mission, which is the same as Christ’s mission: to help extend his Kingdom for the salvation of mankind.
