CFC HANDMAIDS OF THE LORD
Women in the Holy Spirit, joyfully proclaiming the greatness and glory of God as Mary did by living out her fiat: “I am the Handmaid of the Lord, may it be done to me according to your word,” in selfless love and discipleship.
The CFC Handmaids of the Lord is a creation of God distinctly called to the mission of personal transformation, evangelization to bring her family and others, especially women, to a renewed life in the Lord, and wholehearted service to bring glad tidings to the poor.
What is CFC HOLD?
CFC Handmaids of the Lord (HOLD) was established by Couples for Christ (CFC), a Vatican-recognized lay association for the faithful, in response to God’s call for a holistic family ministry. It is a work of Christ that raises up Christian women with Mary as their model, thus winning the world for Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. It is a Christian renewal and support ministry for mature women such as single parents, widows, separated or divorced women, single mature women, married women whose husbands are based in another state or country, or are, for some reason, not able to participate in the CFC and religious affiliation.
How can I be a CFC HOLD member?
Adult Christian women are invited to undergo a free 12-week seminar called the Christian Life Program (CLP). CFC HOLD CLP is an integrated course intended to lead the program participants into a renewed understanding of God’s call to them as Christian women. Each weekly session normally lasts for about 2-1/2 hours and consists of three basic ingredients: a teaching, group discussion, and fellowship.
