Formation of women and consecrated persons

As Consecrated Women, we are called to live fully the feminine genius; that is why we seek to promote works and institutions that lead women and consecrated persons to discover the dignity they have received.

Their apostolate

Irene Alemany

During her 39 years of consecrated life, Irene Alemany, a Spaniard, has worked in youth ministry, in schools, as territorial director of the Consecrated Women in Mexico and in Colombia-Venezuela. She is currently director of the Medellin community. She is an advisor for the pastoral ministry of Regnum Christi schools in Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador, and offers counseling and spiritual direction to consecrated and religious women.

Marta Oseguera

Martha Oseguera has been consecrated for 32 years and has served in the different areas of education, marriage counseling, personal accompaniment, formation and accompaniment of youth. Currently, she serves women in the Mujeres Transendiendo apostolate , founded by her with the purpose of accompanying women at a group and personal level so they experience their feminine identity to the fullest.

Kathleen Nichols

In her 30 years as a Consecrated Woman of Regnum Christi, Kathleen Nichols, an American, has directed and served in Catholic schools in Spain, Argentina, the United States and Italy. She currently lives in the Holy Land on the Sea of Galilee, directs the Magdalena Institute, leads virtual pilgrimages, and organizes experiences for guests at the Magdala Hotel.

As Consecrated Women we strive to develop and express fully the “feminine genius” coined by Pope St John Paul II. We are called to live and deepen the dignity we have received as women, through our apostolates, promoting works and institutions that favor the promotion of women in different sectors of society. Be it for consecrated women or young women, mothers or wives, we provide courses, seminars, retreats, workshops, pilgrimages and other activities that support the formation and launching of women to transform their environment and make present the values of the Gospel.
