Who We Are

By their religious profession, Legionaries commit themselves to imitate and follow Christ.

“I love everything about being a Legionary. I love the spirit, the mission, the discipline, the focus, and the high ideals and expectations. God and all of the souls in our broken world deserve the best of us, and in different ways, He has constantly given me a chance to offer everything — I have out of love for Him, the Church, and humanity.” — Fr. Charles Sikorsky, LC, JD , JCL

The Legion of Christ is a Roman Catholic religious congregation of priests and men studying for the priesthood.

A priest is a man chosen by God to participate in a special way in Jesus Christ’s eternal priesthood. He receives the power to turn bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, and to forgive sins in God’s name.

By their religious profession, Legionaries commit themselves to imitate and follow Christ in poverty, chastity and obedience. They dedicate themselves totally to God, who is their supreme love, and for love of him they are fully available to serve wherever and however God asks of them through obedience.

With the help of God’s grace, we aspire to make Jesus Christ the centre, standard and example of our religious, priestly and apostolic lives. Extending Christ’s Kingdom is the ideal that inspires and nourishes our spiritual and apostolic efforts.

With great charity, joy, and zeal, The Legionaries of Christ invite people into the adventure of living for Christ and transforming the culture around them. Each year they impact thousands of lives through youth work, education, parishes, missions, the sacraments, and spiritual direction.
