Holy Orders
INTERNATIONAL
A sacrament at the service of the community and universal mission of the Church.

“The anointing of the Spirit seals the priest with an indelible, spiritual character that configures him to Christ the priest and enables him to act in the name of Christ the Head. As a co-worker of the order of bishops he is consecrated to preach the Gospel, to celebrate divine worship, especially the Eucharist from which his ministry draws its strength, and to be a shepherd of the faithful” (Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 328).

In the Legion of Christ, priestly ordinations are held every year, usually close to Christmas. The new priests putt he charism of the Legion and of Regnum Christi at the service of the Church and thus carry on the work of evangelization. At the same time, many Movement members actively support their parish priests with Mission Network programs, with their prayers, and with material support.
