|Four Facebook pages for Regnum Christi members.|
April 27, 2011. Regnum Christi members now have a new
virtual meeting place and a way to keep up with
recent news and old friends. Four Facebook pages have made
their debut in the past year:
• Regnum Christi Women North
America is the official Facebook group for RC women’s sections
in the United States and Canada. For those who have
met other Regnum Christi women at various national or regional
conventions and then lost touch, this could be a great
way to find each other again and share experiences, best
practices, prayer requests, and news. The site is moderated by
Kerrie Rivard, the director of women’s sections in North America.
This group has already received over 1,000 visits since it
was opened one week ago on April 20.
years the women in Regnum Christi have expressed a desire
to be more connected with the women in other sections
and other areas of the country,” said Kerrie Rivard. “Facebook
gives us a chance to connect, receive news instantly, share
ideas, be motivated and encouraged by our sisters in Christ
on the front lines of evangelization around the country, build
community and friendships and hear what’s going on in local
Regnum Christi areas everywhere.”
She added, “The forum is open to
anyone to post pictures, prayer requests, questions, ideas, events, etc…
The exciting thing is that it is completely open to
the initiative of the women who use it…and we have
some very creative, talented people out there! We want to
hear from everyone, and engage in discussion on topics from
the spiritual and inspirational to the incidentals of trying to
living a holy life as a Catholic woman.”
