  "Families in the Holy Spirit Renewing the Face of the Earth"

CFC-FFL is an association of lay people who are committed to the work of bringing the Gospel message to people through the Christian Life Seminar (CLS).  It is a work of Christ which raises up Christian couples and establishes Christian families committed to the work of evangelization and winning the world for Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.

CFC-FFL is present in many countries, having many different nationalities as active members, and is officially recognized by the Catholic Church hierarchy. Its primary work is evangelization, founded on family renewal and defending life, as well as participating in the work of building the Church of the Poor.  They began offering the Christiain Life Seminar here at St. Therese in 2009. 

St. Therese Parish, in cooperation with CFC-FFL, invites you to these seminars--held once to twice per year. The group is open to all married couples, single men and women, widows and widowers, divorced persons, and single parents.  The seminar is free and snacks will be provided.  If we are currently having a seminar, it will be listed under the Parish Events link.

CFC began in 1981 in Manila when a local Christian community tried out a new approach in evangelizing married couples. The method used consisted of bringing together a small group of prospective couples in a private home. There they were brought to a living relationship with Jesus Christ and to renewal of the power of the Holy Spirit through a series of weekly informal discussions of the gospel in a social setting.

Soon, CFC became a Christian Family Life renewal program made available to parishes and groups of married couples who wished to live out their Christian life in an active, supportive relationship with one another.  Through the years, CFC has blossomed into a worldwide ministry, becoming a major force for the renewal of Christian family life and also of the Church.  Take advantage of the opportunity to become involved now!
