FAMILIES IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
RENEWING THE FACE OF THE EARTH
CFC THEME 2016: REJOICE. PRAY. GIVE THANKS. (Phil 4:4-7)
Couples for Christ (CFC) USA
is a movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. The members 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 up families under the lordship of Jesus Christ and for the service of the Kingdom of God.
Couples for Christ is a work of Christ which raises up Christian couples and establishes Christian families committed to the work of evangelization, winning the world for Christ and Total Human Liberation through the power of the Holy Spirit.
It grows mainly through the establishment of localized units in different parishes.
REFLECTIONS OF THE HEART
In 1993, CFC established its family ministries. This has provided a “womb-to-tomb” renewal ministry, where persons are evangelized at the youngest age and sustained as they grow through the different stages and states of life. CFC Kids for Christ, CFC Youth for Christ, CFC Singles for Christ, CFC Handmaids of the Lord, and CFC Servants of the Lord provide a support environment for every member of the family. A person moves from one ministry to the next, as his state of life changes. Thus, the whole life of a person while on this world is covered.
Ablaze USA is the social communications arm of Couples for Christ USA. It communicates the behavior and interaction of CFC, and the experience of our culture as a means of strengthening and unifying the community. Ablaze serves to enable and propel the vision and mission of CFC through social communication, which has become the chief means of information, education, and even guidance and inspiration of individuals, families, and society as a whole.
In unity with the Catholic Church, consistent with the core values of Couples for Christ and recognizing Christ as the center of its work, ANCOP USA shares Christ’s love among the poor, uplifts their lives, restores their dignity as children of God, and transforms communities.
