After a year of lock down and COVID 19 restrictions, today’s youth and young adults need meaningful experiences and encounters together. We all know a high schooler or young adult who could benefit. Let’s not let this opportunity pass us by to help make a difference of a lifetime in a young person and in building Regnum Christi. Please prayerfully consider who you can invite – your child, grandchild, niece, nephew, neighbor, your friend’s child, team leaders from your club…

International Formators Course – for Young Men
The IFC is a leadership and formation course taught in Cheshire, Connecticut, whose mission consists in instructing Regnum Christi formators – members who have apostolic and formative responsibilities. This will be achieved through the deepening ofthe participants’ understanding of the triads “God-Man-World” and “Past-Present-Future”.
The course is essentially based on the following questions: Who am I? What world do Ilive in? Where do we come from? Where are we going? And what can I do to transformculture for Christ?
Firstly, it seeks to help the participants discover the pillars of culture, in particular the birth and development of our western civilization, both from a Christian and secular perspective.
Secondly, it provides the necessary tools for the participants to understand and analyze the world in which they live, as well as the consequences this has on themselves as members and sons of a given culture. This includes a view of contemporary societybased on various dimensions, such as Culture, Politics, Business, Media, Ideology, andReligion.
Thirdly, considering the previous topics and their implications, it seeks to launch the participants into the mission and vocation of the Regnum Christi members with the tools to be able to thrive in evangelizing our modern world. In a few words, it seeks to awaken in them the desire to evangelize culture through their personal call to sanctity.
The course consists of various conferences, given by experts on each of the suggested fields, as well as workshops and activities where the participants themselves acquire skills and competences, while at the same time sharing different methodological approaches, ideas, and conclusions.
Lastly, a thorough synthesis of the above mentioned information is sought, in order to form one’s own judgment according to the truth. This will be achieved by a final group project and presentation. Such a criterion guarantees not only the hearing and pondering of each speaker’s position, but also personal participation in synthesizing, creating, and applying what has been learned.
The course is traditionally held in Rome, Italy. Due to the current COVID circumstances, the IFC is offering a special edition course in July at the Humanities Center of the Legionaries of Christ in Cheshire CT, USA. This is a unique and timely opportunity for the young men of our territory to attend.International Formators Course registration is open.
Join us this September for the Vocations Summit, a gathering of young adults, priests, consecrated men and women, and lay people of all walks of life to talk about vocations and the needs of the church, and to create a vocation culture starting with the family. There will be opportunities to spend time with the seminaries and listen to inspiring conferences that will help us focus on how to serve the church and build it up through young men and women who serve Christ in the priesthood, Consecrated life, and in the family.
