Legionaries of Christ

Our Detroit Legionary Community

The Legionaries of Christ are part of the Regnum Christi family, sharing a charism, spirituality, and mission with Consecrated Women and lay members of the Movement.

Since 1974, our priests have been serving as School Chaplains. Starting at Brother Rice, today at Everest Collegiate & Academy, St. Thomas More Academy, and Chiquitos Bilingual Montessori School. As well leading retreats, faith formation, and healing programs in English and Spanish all across Michigan.

We support individuals and families, accompany couples in marriage preparation and renewal, and organize youth programs, and carry out missions and pilgrimages  in the US and abroad.

The Legionary community in Bloomfield Hills serves Regnum Christi families and supports the pastoral needs of the Archdiocese of Detroit and local parishes, most especially in Oakland County.
