October 12, 2011. Atlanta, GA. Regnum Christi’s Atlanta sections has recently launched a local web site gathering all a host of helpful local RC information in one place. At www.rcatlanta.org, members and friends can now “meet” the Legionaries and consecrated members running the sections, read recent news and blog entries, find out what activities, retreats, and missions are coming up, make a donation, and more.
 
The theme of this year’s Atlanta section is “Renewing Hearts,” with an emphasis on a renewed commitment to holiness, communion, and service in the formation of apostles.
 
Virtual tour
 
The RC Atlanta web site is organized into 9 major tabs: LC/RC Team, Lay Sections, Services, Blogs, Missions, Events, News, Donations, and Prayers.
 
• The LC/RC Team tab introduces each of the individuals on the Atlanta teams of Legionaries, consecrated women, and RC Mission Corps volunteers.

• Under Lay Sections, visitors get an overview of the main breakdown of Regnum Christi sections, which include the men’s, women, young men’s, young women’s, ECYD boys’, and ECYD girls’ groups. The current section leaders for each group are also listed.

• The Services tab presents what exactly the Legionaries and Regnum Christi members do in the Atlanta area to form apostles. The Programs subtab lists all of the Regnum Christi apostolates currently active in the Atlanta area,  including men’s, women’s and pre-Cana retreats.

• Under the Blogs tab, Legionaries and consecrated women blog about their spiritual and apostolic experiences.

• The Missions tab offers visitors an updated listing of this year’s missions trips, with articles, videos, and links for further information.

• On a more particular and practical level, the Events tab presents an adjustable calendar view of upcoming local and national activities for all sections as well as registration information for events.

• The News tab presents stories about recent Atlanta section events, such as a video of a recent State of the Section address given by Fr David Daly, LC or a missionary trip to a Louisiana prison.

• A Donations tab presents the Atlanta section Annual Appeal with a specific breakdown of local and national expenses to which members can contribute, plus offers the means to make a donation by credit card or by check.

• Finally, the Prayers tab gives visitors the means to submit their prayer intentions to the site, either with their name or anonymously.

The site already has social networking features so that visitors can read and comment on what they read. In addition, the site will soon have an online bookstore, bulletin board, and mobile capacity for viewing the site through mobile devices.

A tool for local communion

For Brent Cieply, one of the architects of the new web page, the site is a means to help people get connected to Regnum Christi on the local level.

“With the  power of the internet as a mass-communication tool,  it was important for us to develop a site that could take advantage of this aspect.  With rctlanta.org, we we’re able to create a space that offers members in Atlanta a centralized access point with information that is important to them,” said Cieply. 

“Whether it’s reading about a recent mission, registering for a retreat, or enjoying the spiritual thoughts from a familiar LC or consecrated in the blogs, members can stay connected and continue to build upon the ‘family spirit’ that is integral to Regnum Christi.  At the same time, it provides us an outlet to share with a broader audience  all of the exciting events and apostolic services occurring in the Atlanta area,” he said.
