Regnum Christi youth and ECYD members have been busy this summer. The following blurbs offer just a few small glimpses of the various activities that have been held around the world.

Crakovian Campers Live their Faith

From July 31 to August 3, the boys of Club Horyzont in Crakow, Poland headed off into the woods for a father-son camping trip in Miêdzybrodzie Bia³ska. In addition to organized games and sports, the camping trip featured some elements prepared by the campers themselves.

The boys and their fathers prepared and then prayed a Via Crucis together, complete with costumes for each of the characters. The dads wrote 7 prayers for the first half of the stations, while the boys prepared 7 skits for the second half of the stations.

As part of the formation that was given during the camp, one of the dads also gave a talk to the other adults on how to choose good video games for their boys.

Three club leaders participated, helping with the practical organization of the camp while also taping a video that will be shown to the parents at the start of the school year. Fr Matthew Devereux, LC, celebrated Mass and heard confessions, attending to the spiritual needs of the campers, while Br Tomasz Lis, LC, assisted.

August, Regnum Christi young men from France went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land together. Their trip, which was both an integration and spiritual growth activity, began on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, where they visited some of the most important places in Christ’s early years and apostolic ministry.

One highlight was their climb up Mount Tabor on August 6, the feast of the Transfiguration. They also visited the land where the Legion’s future Magdala Center will be built as a hotel and center with capacity for up to 300 pilgrims.

While visiting Jerusalem, the youth decided to spend an entire night in prayer inside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. They also visited the holy places in the city, from the room where the Last Supper was celebrated to the Garden of Gethsemane to the various chapels along the way of the Via Crucis.

For these young men, the pilgrimage was a powerful moment of growth in their faith, of seeing the Gospel in a new light, and of growing together as Regnum Christi members.

Legionary Life in Italy

From August 4 – 11, a group of German youth participated in a vocational get-together in Santa María de Términi, which is located on the peninsula of Sorrento, Italy. The get-together was organized by Fr Martin Baranowski, LC, for a mixed group of 4th stage ECYD members (age 15) and Regnum Christi young men (age 16 and up).

Santa María de Términi is the summer vacation spot of the Legionaries who study and work in Rome, so the boys also had plenty of opportunities to witness Legionary life up close in a setting of unparalleled beauty.

activities for orphans in the city of Córdoba. A group of 40 youth volunteers spent their day caring for the children of the Eva Perón orphanage and Sisters of St Teresita home.

The volunteers took the children to a movie theater, where they went behind the scenes in the projection room and received an explanation of how movies are projected. Then the kids took their seats in the theater for a special showing of “Ice Age 3.” After the movie, they all went off to a restaurant to eat hamburgers.

The kids weren’t the only ones who had a great time. The volunteers were also very grateful for the opportunity to help the children and share their time and values with them.
