Our Family Ministriess


CFC-FFL COMMUNITY PRAYER 2019

Almighty Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, may you be glorified as we and our households serve you.

Lord Jesus, you who are not ashamed to call us brothers, help us to do the will of our heavenly Father, so that we would be deserving to be your true family. Keep us secure along the paths of holiness and discipleship, and to be always obedient to you as our Master.

Holy Spirit, you who are the love that binds Father and Son together, empower us to know the love of Christ and be filled with all the fullness of God. Strengthen us as we endure the challenges of the authentic Christian life, and help us to be perfect through suffering.

Triune God, keep us, our households and our community steadfast in our resolve to serve you. Send us forth to be families on mission. Use us in order to witness to your love and to establish your dominion over the whole world.

Mama Mary, comfort us in our afflictions, cover us with your mantle of protection, and keep us in your loving embrace always.

Amen.

by Lianne Laurence
OTTAWA, December 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau will ban any employer from receiving summer job grants for students if the employer doesn't first sign an “attestation” that they agree with abortion and transgender "rights." The new criteria were sent to all MPs and will be made public when the Canada Summer Jobs Program officially opens December 19, 2017. URGENT: Tell Justin Trudeau you oppose this attack on freedom of conscience. Sign the petition! Click here.

Canada Demands Pro-abortion, Pro-LGBT Loyalty Oath for Businesses  

December 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The tolerance of Justin Trudeau and his progressive government has struck again, just in time for Christmas­ and this time, it comes in the form of a demand that any organization seeking to apply for funding from the Canada Summer Jobs Program first give an “attestation” that they support an entire laundry list of far-left causes, including abortion, transgenderism, and the redefinition of marriage. This new ideological purity test will automatically exclude millions of Canadian Christians, Jews, Sikhs, and Muslims­essentially, anyone who differs from the government position on any “progressive” cause.





CFC-Singles for Family and Life

 

What is CFC Singles for Family and Life (CFC-SFL)?

CFC-SFL is a ministry of Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL) that focuses on the evangelization of single men and women aged 21-40 years old.

CFC-SFL provides an environment to help these single men and women to live a full and meaningful life with Christ at the center of it.

CFC-SFL is a Catholic Ministry where single men and women can experience Jesus Christ, know their state of life, be effective and efficient in their workplace, be a strong witness of God's love and faithfulness in their family, peers, and community, where everyone can experience true brotherhood and sisterhood having God at the center of it.

 

What is the CFC-SFL entry point?

The Singles candidate attends a 9-week Christian Life Seminar (CLS) after which they receive support through regular Household (cell group) Meetings, Prayer Assemblies and fellowship with other brothers and sisters.

Three months later, the candidate will go through the Covenant Recollection for an even deeper growth in their relationship with God and for a better understanding of their commitment to God as a community. At this point, the Singles candidate will decide whether he or she desires to enter into this covenant to be a community member of CFC-SFL.

Worship

We nurture our personal relationship with the Lord through personal prayer time and charismatic worship as a community.

Discipleship

We are all called to discipleship in accordance to how God calls each one uniquely. In SFL, opportunities for service are provided such as giving talks, leading a household, serving in the parish, ministering in the prisons, teaching catechism to children as well as other ways to lead to the restoration of life as a whole.

Ministry

Our spiritual formation is continuous through our regular teachings and activities about God's promises and plan, Scripture as well as our veneration to our Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor.

We also have an annual World Singles Congress wherein SFL members from all over the world gather in one place and be nourished by God's message to the community for the year.

Evangelism

We are witnesses of God's love and faithfulness by the way we live our lives. We hope that others will come to know God's saving power and, through our example, be led to know and love Him more.

As an evangelistic community, we also go on mission trips to spread God's message of love and hope to other places within and outside of the country.

Fellowship

We relate with each other in brotherhood and sisterhood. After the CLS, the Singles are divided into household (cell) groups composed of 5-7 members each. This household meets at least twice a month in prayer, personal sharing and sometimes just having fun together.
