Discernment

Our formation is about transformation into Christ and an adequate preparation to be apostles of the New Evangelization.

What is our discernment process like?

Do you feel called to belong exclusively to Jesus and bring that love to others?

Are you looking to live in community and together evangelize culture?

Do you want to form and accompany others to be Christian leaders? 

You may want to discern your vocation with us. This is a period of personal discernment to get to know the lifestyle, charism and mission of the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi.  In this initial stage, vocational accompaniment is offered through spiritual direction and local vocational retreats. You could also choose to live in a community of Consecrated Women for one or two semesters. Formal discernment within the Society begins by participating in the summer entrance course.

Stages Of Initial Formation

“The stages of initial formation refer to the time between the first vocational desires where one decides to start the journey of vocational discernment, to the final step of making final vows in the Society” cf. Ratio #292

Summer Discernment Course:

This is a vocational discernment course that seeks to clarify a possible call from God and to see if one is ready to begin the candidacy. This course usually lasts four to six weeks during the summer.

 

Candidacy: 

During these 2 years of our Candidacy program, young women experience the day-to-day living of consecrated life: the living of the evangelical counsels, community life, and mission. This stage gives Candidates time and space to develop a deeper relationship with God, learning more about themselves and this vocation, and to experience our spirituality and way of life.​ Currently our Candidacy is in Monterrey, Mexico.

Period of studies:

Once accepted into the Society, the young woman makes her first vows of poverty, chastity and obedience for three years and officially becomes a Consecrated Woman of Regnum Christi. During this period, the Consecrated Women dedicate themselves to study, usually theology, and live in community with others in this stage of formation. It is a time of vocational confirmation prior to the renewal of their temporary vows.

In apostolate:

In this stage, the Consecrated Woman seeks to integrate the apostolic dimension of her consecration in an environment that allows her to learn and practice how to do apostolate, while continuing to consolidate the other aspects of her call. It is a period to confirm her vocation as a Consecrated Woman in Regnum Christi before making her final vows.

Final vows

Once the experience of consecrated life has matured, after confirming the call of God and responding with a free yes to the Lord, she asks to be admitted to make final vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in the Society of Apostolic Life of the Consecrated Women of Regnum Christi.
