Results from the Regnum Christi general membership survey conducted early
this summer are consistent with the survey taken in 2011.
More than 700 Legionaries, consecrated and lay members completed this
year’s form, about half the number from two years ago.
in the earlier survey, members continue to raise a desire
for greater transparency in how we operate and a clearer
view of the Movement’s overall mission. Both issues are being
addressed in our renewal process.
Two years ago, many respondents expressed
a desire that Regnum Christi put greater emphasis on working
within the local Church, particularly in parishes. The 2013 survey
indicates that we have made much progress in this area.
the same time, respondents identified weakness in our willingness to
invite new people to the Movement, indicating there are some
members still awaiting the results of the various assemblies later
this fall and the Legion’s General Chapter to be held
early in 2014. The majority of those surveyed are positive
about inviting new members to the Movement.
The survey results show
that we tend to work with the people God puts
in our path, not any particular category or social strata
of people And our members see those most attracted to
the Movement as “people who want to learn more about
their faith and grow in their relationship with Christ.”
encouraging note, the survey results show that our members are
strongly in agreement with strengths we recognize in our Mission
