Heavenly Father, you are the Creator and we are all your children. Make us truly one. Protect us from the division in families, in communities, in the Church and in the world.
Lord Jesus Christ, you are the Savior who died for us and saved us. Now as your disciples, you send us forth to proclaim the good news of salvation in you throughout the world. May we be worthy witnesses. Show us the way to self-denial, embrace of the cross, and following you. Raise among us true servant leaders who have a passion for souls.
Holy Spirit, you are the agent of evangelization who sends us to engage in spiritual warfare. Equip us with the armor of God and weapons of righteousness. Help us to preserve unity in the Spirit through the bond of peace. May we stand together as your holy warriors.
Triune God, you are three Persons in one God. In you we have one baptism, one faith, one hope. We are one body. Help us to truly become united in mind and heart, in vision and mission, to be one with the Father through the Son and in the Spirit.
Mama Mary, you are our beloved Mother. We are your offspring who strive to keep God's commands, bear witness to Jesus, and wage war in the Spirit against the enemy. Cover us with your mantle of protection, keeping us in your loving embrace always.
We as the people of God live by the Spirit and not by the flesh. “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires.” (v.24). We are to avoid the works of the flesh. “Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, orgies, and the like.” (v.19-21a).
December 12, 2016 (C-Fam) – With his job still on the line, the newly appointed UN independent expert for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights laid out a provocative agenda for his 3-year term a couple weeks ago. “This mandate will cover every country under the sun and under the moon,” Thai Professor Vitit Muntarbhorn is reported to have said, further antagonizing countries that have already promised not to cooperate with him.
CFC-YFL is part of the Youth Ministry Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL) that caters to youth aged 13-21 years old.
The entry point to CFC Youth for Family and Life (YFL), is the Youth Camp. The Youth Camp is a three-day stay-in camp that is normally conducted during the summer and semester breaks to officially bring the youth into YFL.
As a part of the larger family of CFC-FFL, CFC-YFL shares it's vision, mission and core values.
We are an evangelistic and missionary community, committed to become families empowered by the Holy Spirit to renew the face of the earth.
We strive for holiness of life, as we commit to renew the temporal order through our work with the poor, our work for justice, and our work for life.
"CFC YFL exists to provide an environment for the youth to HONOR God through a life of holiness, to EMPOWER them to ACT in humble service, to encourage them to RELATE in joy with their family, community and the Church and to TESTIFY God's love."
Our culture is our way of doing things in the ministry. Youth attending our activities, member or non-member, will see these as the FACE of CFC-YFL.
It is a characteristic of the youth to seek activities that are pleasurable and amusing. We in CFC-YFL provide just that kind of environment in the spirit of Catholic enjoyment. We desire to fulfill the need of the youth for merriment through activities that promote not only spiritual but social growth as well.
A determinant to one's active participation in a community is the feeling of being welcomed. In CFC-YFL, we strive to create an atmosphere of belongingness wherein everyone is given warm reception regardless of race, gender, physical attributes, attitude… etc. We believe that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ because by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body and have been all made to drink into one Spirit (1 Cor. 12:13). Therefore, each person should be loved, just like Christ had loved, in spite of who he/she is and was. (John 15:12)
The focal point in the existence of CFC-YFL is Christ. We look to Jesus Christ as our model and guide. Therefore, in each endeavor and activity in our community, we first and foremost seek that God will be glorified. Every activity's goal is for the participant to know Christ and be like Him.
Since in CFC-YFL we believe that all things should be done for the glory of God (1 Peter 4:11), we do everything outstandingly in all the aspects of our lives. We do everything to the best of our abilities by dwelling in truth, honor, righteousness, purity, loveliness and good reputation. (Philippians 4:8)
