Our history in Regnum Christi and as consecrated lay people began in 1972.
On January 25, 1972, two young men from the Madrid section of Regnum Christi were incorporated into the third degree for men at the end of a short course. This was the first consecration of men in the Regnum Christi from which the group of consecrated laity was formed and which has survived to the present day: first as a third degree secular, then as a Private Association of the Faithful and today as a Society of Apostolic Life.
The availability and generosity of those young men bore fruit historically in the establishment of the male consecrated lay life in Regnum Christi, thus allowing other members of Regnum Christi to find and live the consecrated lay vocation.
