|Bishop Ramon Argüelles and Medical Missions in the Philippines.|
Since then, Regnum Christi has served the archdioceses of Manila and Lipa,
and the dioceses of Parañaque, Pasig, and Cubao with evangelization
and humanitarian missions, such as the Helping Hands medical missions.
Regnum Christi members with legal expertise have also organized Legal
Missions to provide free legal counsel to those in need.
Working with the youth has been a priority since
the beginning. In 2004, the first Challenge Club for
girls was launched, and in 2005, the first ConQuest
Club was started for boys. Both stand out for the
formation they give to the adolescents.
In August of 2007, Legionaries and Regnum
Christi lay people opened the Philippines´ first international Catholic school,
Everest Academy. As it continues to grow, the school will
provide boys and girls from grades 1 through 12 with
an education based on the method of integral formation
used in Legionary schools worldwide.
The Philippines already has
several other youth apostolates up and running, including CKNet, which
provides spiritual formation to boys and girls from ages 5 to
10, and Pure Fashion, which helps high school girls grow in virtue
and character formation through modest fashion shows. The Christian Life apostolate
is coming soon.
The Regnum Christi youth sections have launched various
apostolates and missionary projects at the service of the poor and of
orphaned children, especially through the MissionYouth and Living Dreams
(Making Dreams Come True) apostolates.
In September 2008, Manila´s first Mano Amiga school opened its doors for kindergarten students, with
plans to expand every year.
The Philippines also has the constant
presence of coworkers, as well as a Legionary community and
a center of Regnum Christi consecrated women.
Another beautiful initiative by
Regnum Christi members is the construction of the St
Mary’s Catholic Center, a parish mission center founded for catechesis
and evangelization of the local Filipino people. St Mary´s was
solemnly blessed by Most Reverend Filomeno Bactol, DD, Bishop of
the diocese of Naval on September 8, 2008, the feast
of the birth of Mary.
