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.



Bishop Tells Catholic Politicians Who Support Abortion to Repent and Become Pro-Life

INTERNATIONAL MICAIAH BILGER JAN 2, 2019 | 11:01AM DUBLIN, IRELAND

Pro-abortion politicians should repent for promoting the destruction of human life, Irish Catholic Bishop Kevin Doran said Tuesday. Ireland officially legalized abortion Jan. 1, a dark new era for the once strongly pro-life nation. New Year’s Day was a day of mourning for pro-life advocates, but also one of determination as they vowed to continue working to protect unborn babies.

CONSECRATION TO OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY

O Blessed Virgin Mary, you with your Son Jesus crushed the head of the serpent. In the spiritual war that continues to rage in the heavens and on earth, you have already won the victory. Your holy warriors stand before you, dear Mother Mary. We consecrate ourselves to the cause of your Son Jesus, the Redeemer of the world, and to you as his Co-Redemptrix. We dedicate ourselves to the task of winning souls for the Kingdom. We commit to do battle against all evil forces. Cover us with your mantle of protection as you send us forth under your banner. Amen.

CFC-Kids for Family and Life

 

What is the reality concerning kids today?

Kids today (2009) are affected by the "emo" culture or a culture of insecurity and feeling of unworthiness. They are also more mature than their age. They are individualistic - not eager to interact with other kids. Kids are stressed! Affected by media, peers, etc. They are not afraid of authority - they do and try anything that they want. Kids today have no good role models. And there are no more kid friendly shows on TV. And above all that, they have less time with parents and almost no family time.

What is CFC Kids for Family and Life (CFC-KFL)?

CFC-KFL is a young ministry of Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL). Members are aged 0 - 12 years old.

What is the Vision of CFC-KFL?

CFC KFL will bring out the BEST in Kids!

CFC KFL will be a venue to form Strong Christian Families by having parents who are involved with their kids and having kids who are part of the life of the Church!

CFC KFL will bring kids into a deeper relationship with Christ because NO ONE is too young to know Christ!

What does CFC-KFL believe?

  • Children have a special place in God's heart (Mt 18: 1 - 6; 10).
  • Children can grow in their love for and trust in God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Eph 6: 4).
  • The pre-teen stage of a child's life is crucial as it is part of his formative years.
  • Children need a positive concept of themselves.
  • Children's God-given talents need to be recognized and nurtured in a healthy Christian environment that is fun-loving and life giving.
  • Children may play a significant role in the life and mission of the church (1 Tim 4: 12).
  • Christian Family renewal can best be achieved if all the members of the family have accepted Jesus as the center of their home - including the children (Jos 24: 15).

 

What does CFC-KFL aim to do?

  • Help the children enjoy a relationship with Jesus Christ in an environment that is fun and life-giving through scripture, worship, education, service and in fellowship with their friends.
  • Create an atmosphere where Christian values can be shared, practiced, supported, developed, experienced and more importantly reinforced in the home.
  • Conduct spiritual training for the children that will be reinforced in the home, thus conduct training for the parents as well so that CFC-KFL and the parents can work hand in hand in their spiritual nourishment.

What are the 3 support environments for CFC-KFL?

  • TODDLERS / Infants / Babies (0 to 4 years old)
  • JUNIOR KIDS / Tots / Children (5 to 8 years old)
  • SENIOR KIDS Tweens / Pre-Adolescent (9 to 12 years old)

What is the CFC-KFL Purpose?

  • Worship - "Love God with all your heart"
  • Ministry - "Love your neighbor as yourself"
  • Evangelism - "Go and make disciples"
  • Fellowship - "Baptizing them"
  • Discipleship - "Teaching them to obey"

They will be easier to remember using the acronym HEART:

Honor (Worship)

Education/Empower (Discipleship)

Act (Ministry)

Relate (Fellowship)

Testify (Evangelism)

Thus ...

The CFC-KFL Purpose Statement

CFC KFL exists to provide an environment for Kids to HONOR Jesus and Mama Mary by living like them, to EMPOWER them to ACT in humble service, to encourage them to RELATE in joy with their family, friends and the Church and to TESTIFY to God's love.

Who are involved with CFC-KFL?

The Parents
Parents are at the forefront of our work with the kids. Whatever is taught at home is reinforced in CFC KFL. And without the commitment and support of the parents, CFC KFL will not be able to penetrate the kids completely especially in their faith and personal relationship with Christ!

The CFC-KFL Workers
Coordinators, Fulltime workers, Kids Ministry Servants / Ate / Kuyas, Mission Volunteer

What is the entry point to CFC-KFL?

There are 2 Entry Points to CFC KFL, depending upon the age of the kid. For those 9 - 12 years old, there is the Senior Kids Camp. And for those 5 to 8 years old, there is the Junior Kids Day (those below 5 are encouraged to attend, though informally). There are manuals for the respective Entry Points.
