Couples for Christ

Couples for Christ (CFC) Global Mission Foundation Inc.  is a Catholic movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life.

CFC couples have committed themselves to the Lord and to one another so that they may grow in maturity as men and women of God and fulfill their primary vocation of raising families grounded in Christian values, in the service and love of God. 

 

CFC Vision Statement:

Families in the Holy Spirit renewing the face of the earth.
CFC Mission Statement:

Building the church of the home, building the church of the poor.

Who can join Couples for Christ?

Any validly married Catholic couple can become members of CFC. Although a Catholic movement/organization, CFC remains open to having non-Catholic Christians as members.

 

How do I become a member of CFC?

Those who want to join CFC will have to go through a Christian Life Program (CLP).

 

What is Christian Life Program?

The Christian Life Program or CLP is an integrated course intended to lead the couple into a renewed understanding of God's call to them as Christians. It runs for a total of 12 separate topics, one leading to the other, usually held once a week. At the end of the seminar, couple-participants are invited to dedicate themselves to the Lord as CFC members and to commit to participate actively in the life of the community and of the Church through regular prayer meetings, attendance in community assemblies and teachings, participation in parish life.

 

 

What’s next?

CLP graduates are then grouped into “household groups”, consisting of at least 4 and up to 7 couples under the pastoral care supervision of a household head.

The households are an essential feature of community life for the adults. They meet once a week, to discuss the Gospel, share testimonies about their own struggles to live according to Christ’s example, and to support one another in their spiritual journey.

CFC members are expected to work actively for the renewal of their own families, on the premise that the family is the basic unit of society.
