New Beginnings in Eastern Canada
Maritime members hold encounter to discuss upcoming RC renewal process affecting all North American localities

Maritime Encounter in Canada
Twenty-two RC members (11 couples) gathered at the home of Joe and Deb D’Ettore in New Brunswick on June 14, 2014, for their "Maritime Encounter."

Regnum Christi members who live in the Canadian “Maritime” provinces -- Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick – held an encounter last month to review the upcoming Renewal Process for the First and Second Degree Regnum Christi members.

The day opened with song and prayer, reflecting on God’s Word together and lifting up spontaneous intentions.  They also reflected on the themes of “Christ the King” and the “Sacred Heart of Jesus” and “how to provide for their spiritual and apostolic needs while not having active section life due to long distances.”  

Regnum Christi consecrated woman Tawnya Arsenault shared some of her vocational journey over the last years regarding the visitation, revision and renewal of the life of the RC consecrated and Legion of Christ members. Tawnya also answered questions and led discussion for group discussion about the RC charism, spirituality, apostolate and common experience over these past 5 years. 

Then RC member Deb D’Ettore reviewed the renewal process, which will begin this fall with the “Illumination” stage, to be launched at the Atlanta (Georgia) Convention this coming October. Maritime members will meet following the convention, as will other RC localities, to begin local discussions.

Deb discussed how the Statute Revision stage is set to begin in January 2015, with the local process taking place between through June 2015.  In order for RC members to participate in the statute revision, they must take part in the beginning stages. The hope is that all Regnum Christi members who are interested will participate.

Thank you to those who were able to be present at this encounter (and others like them) and to those who supported them through prayer.  Please continue to keep the Renewal Process for all localities in your prayers.
