Live the Mystery: A Regnum Christi Identity Workshop brings together the presentations and materials of the Regnum Christi Formator's Convention of September 2020 so that Regnum Christi members can ponder how the mystery of Christ made present through the RC charism transforms their lives and continues Christ's mission through them. It is an opportunity to experience, discover, and more fully live the Mystery that we have been entrusted with through our charism and to interact in a creative virtual way with RC Leaders from around the territory. This shared charism and mission is what brings us together and enables us to more deeply discover it in ourselves when we see it lived in others.
