“God gave me a great mission to help found the Movement in Peru. I can’t thank him enough.”

Lima, August 19, 2008. For over a decade, the Regnum Christi Movement has been taking its first steps and growing stronger in Peru.

In 1998, the first Regnum Christi section was founded in the capital city of Lima with a group of women led by Fr Donal O’Keeffe, LC, who traveled from Chile to support the foundation. The team leader was Mrs Pepi Ojeda, who played an important role in this foundation. Today, Fr Donal continues traveling regularly to Lima. The Regnum Christi women from Chile have also given great support to the foundation in Lima.

In the following years, the number of women increased and they began formalizing the section’s apostolic work.

Apostolates

Peru now has the following apostolates:

  • ANSPAC: This was the first apostolate started in Lima. It currently has six units in Chincha, Manchay, Musa, and Punta Hermosa. The program gives formation to about 180 women.
  • Pilgrim Queen of the Family started in 2004. It is in operation among both Regnum Christi teams and groups that are not part of the Movement.
  • Mission Youth: During June of 2008, the first mission was held in Punta Hermosa.
  • ECYD girls and young women: in 2007, Carmen Coll, of Mission Network in Chile, visited Peru. On that occasion, the Regnum Christi women organized a meeting with their daughters. During the meeting, Carmen presented Club Giro and proposed to found it there. A few weeks went by and they had gathered girls from three schools. They organized some evangelization missions and started up an apostolate for charitable service.

In May of 2008, the Regnum Christi consecrated women gave some talks on spirituality and methodology to the young women who were already team leaders for Club Giro, and they were excited to start the

young women’s section in Lima. Afterwards, they decided to join the Movement in an incorporation ceremony during a Mass presided over by Fr Donal O’Keeffe, LC. One of the young women said: “I just realized that God gave me a great mission: I’m called to help found the Movement in Peru. I can’t stop thanking God.”
