important for us to develop a site that could take
advantage of this aspect. With rctlanta.org, we we’re able to
create a space that offers members in Atlanta a centralized
access point with information that is important to them,” said
“Whether it’s reading about a recent mission, registering for
a retreat, or enjoying the spiritual thoughts from a familiar
LC or consecrated in the blogs, members can stay connected
and continue to build upon the ‘family spirit’ that is
integral to Regnum Christi. At the same time, it provides

of the exciting events and apostolic services occurring in the
Atlanta area,” he said.
