Fr Thomas Williams LC asks to leave priesthood
Legionaries, Regnum Christi members offer prayers

Last May, it was revealed that Fr Thomas Williams LC fathered a child a number of years ago.  In that light, the Legion asked Fr Thomas to take a year for prayer and penance, to discern his future course in the light of God’s will.

Following that time, Fr Thomas has written to the Holy Father to request dispensation from the obligations of his ministry.

The Legion and Regnum Christi are grateful for the many contributions Fr Thomas made during his time with the congregation.  We continue to accompany him with our prayers and fraternal support wishing him the best in the years ahead.

Fr John Connor LC has published a reflection on Regnum Christi Live.

Yours in Christ,
Jim Fair, Director of Communications, Legion of Christ and Regnum Christi
