With this site the Legionaries of Christ seek to be transparent regarding the abuses committed by some of its members throughout its history. We want to contribute to the victim’s healing and to promote safe environments that offer all possible guarantees for a future of zero abuse.

accountability

Every commitment requires accountability. On 21 December 2019, we published a report on sexual abuse in the Legionaries of Christ since its foundation in 1941 to the present, which will be updated periodically. Learn more about it here.

prevention

The Congregation is firmly committed to creating and maintaining safe environments for minors and vulnerable adults who have contact with Legionaries and who participate in our activities. There are measures put into place to prevent abuse, clear procedures for acting immediately on any allegations and reporting them to authorities. Our main priority is the prevention of abuse as well as the well-being and healing of any victim.
