First Steps

The Legion took its first steps in the United Kingdom in 1990, when a few Legionaries from the community in Rome were invited for a visit by some families. The purpose of these first visits was to introduce the work and spirituality of the congregation.

An Invitation

A Legionary priest and a religious were invited to help support the ongoing ministry of the parish of St James at Spanish Place, London and Regnum Christi members in the London Area.

Formation and Ministry

Legionary priests from the Dublin community made periodic visits to London, offering members retreats, marriage renewals, spiritual and pastoral formation and spiritual direction.

With this training in hand, the Regnum Christi members became more involved on the ground in ministries within their local parishes and communities. In the late 1990s, Regnum Christi members launched a temporary ministry to network with young professionals by offering a spirit of community, conferences on current themes, etc.  In the early 2000s, they started K4J (Kids for Jesus) in a number of parishes with a network of families interested in forming virtue in their children.

Several years ago, the Pilgrim Queen of the Family apostolate came to the United Kingdom, helping families to draw closer to Jesus through Mary as we pray the Rosary together.

Present Day

At Present, there are RC members in a few parts of the country, but all activities are centralised in London. The priest responsible is Fr Aaron Smith, LC:  [email protected]

Alex Kucera


Alex Kucera has lived in Atlanta, GA, for the last 46 years. He is one of 9 children, married to his wife Karmen, and has 3 girls, one grandson, and a granddaughter on the way. Alex joined Regnum Christi in 2007. Out of the gate, he joined the Helping Hands Medical Missions apostolate and is still participating today with the Ghana Friendship Mission.

In 2009, Alex was asked to be the Atlanta RC Renewal Coordinator for the Atlanta Locality to help the RC members with the RC renewal process. Alex became a Group Leader in 2012 for four of the Atlanta Men’s Section Teams and continues today. Running in parallel, in 2013, Alex became a Team Leader and shepherded a large team of good men.

Alex was honored to be the Atlanta Mission Coordinator between 2010 to 2022 (12 years), coordinating 5-8 Holy Week Mission teams across Georgia. He also created and coordinated missions at a parish in Athens, GA, for 9 years. Alex continues to coordinate Holy Week Missions, Advent Missions, and Monthly missions at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Cumming, GA.

From 2016 to 2022, Alex also served as the Men’s Section Assistant in Atlanta. He loved working with the Men’s Section Director, the Legionaries, Consecrated, and Women’s Section leadership teams.

Alex is exceptionally grateful to the Legionaries, Consecrated, and many RC members who he’s journeyed shoulder to shoulder, growing his relationship with Christ and others along the way. He knows that there is only one way, that’s Christ’s Way, with others!
