ReGAIN members have taken an active part in previous conferences and there have now been several presentations about the Legionaries of Christ and Regnum Christi.
I.C.S.A. deserves support from former members and family members and friends of members past or present. Most practicing Roman Catholics have a false sense of security that there are no cult groups within the Catholic Church and a lack of knowledge regarding such groups and mind control. Once a family member has become a member it is too late to intervene.
I.C.S.A. has established an excellent resource center for its members and some of this information is freely available on their website. They are proactively gathering information about destructive groups including Catholic groups and through their efforts, the decision makers in the Church and interested members of the general public are gradually becoming more aware of how to deal with them.
