Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi in London
UNITED KINGDOM | WHERE WE ARE

The Legion of Christ and the Regnum Christi Movement took their first steps in London in 1990.

The Legion took its first steps in the United Kingdom in 1990, when a few Legionaries from the community in Rome were invited for a visit by some families. The purpose of these first visits was to introduce the work and spirituality of the congregation.

From 1993 to 1995, a Legionary priest and a religious were invited to help support the ongoing ministry of the parish of St James at Spanish Place, London.

From 1997 onward, Legionary priests from the Dublin community made periodic visits to London, offering members retreats, marriage renewals, spiritual and pastoral formation and direction.

With this training in hand, the Regnum Christi members became more involved on the ground in ministries within their local parishes and communities. In the late 1990s, Regnum Christi members launched a temporary ministry to network with young professionals by offering a spirit of community, conferences on current themes, etc.  In the early 2000s, they started K4J (Kids for Jesus) in a number of parishes with a network of families interested in forming virtue in their childre}

Several years ago, the Pilgrim Queen of the Family apostolate came to the United Kingdom, helping families to draw closer to Jesus and Mary by praying the Rosary together

2014-2015

At Present, there are RC members in a few parts of the country, but all activities are centralised in London. The priest responsible is Fr Matthew Brackett LC
mbrackett@legionaries.org, based in Rome, Italy. He is helped by Fr. Javier Oseguera, LC fjoseguera@arcol.org, also based in Rome.
