Couples for Christ (CFC) is a Catholic movement for the renewal and strengthening of Christian marriage and family life with global vision of “Families in the Holy Spirit renewing the face of the earth”. CFC seeks to raise up Christian couples and families committed to the work of evangelization and the mission of Jesus in bringing glad tidings to the poor, These are accomplished in its two-fold global mission of “Building the Church of the Home” and “Building the Church of the Poor.” CFC has been granted Vatican recognition as an International Association of the Faithful of the Pontifical Right. CFC is present in more than 100 countries around the world and in 43 states in the U.S. For Spanish-speaking Catholics, we have the full equivalent of CFC in “Parejas Para Cristo” (PPC).
CFC FAMILY MINISTRIES provide “womb-to-tomb” renewal, starting at a young age and sustained through the different stages of life: CFC Kids (for children ages 4-12), CFC Youth (for children ages 13-18), Singles for Christ (for single young adults ages 19-40), Handmaids of the Lord (for widows, mature single women, divorced women and single mothers), and Servants of the Lord (for widowers, mature single men, divorced men and single fathers). They are CFC’s ministries for “Building the Church of the Home”. ANCOP, acronym for ANswering the Cry Of the Poor, is CFC’s vehicle in “Building the Church of the Poor”. It currently provides education opportunities to underprivileged children (elementary, high school and college), develops communities through housing programs, and supports priests doing their post-graduate studies.
