Couples for Christ
Building the Church of the Home, Building the Church of the Poor A Private International Association of the Faithful of Pontifical Right
Families in the Holy Spirit Renewing the Face of the Earth
Couples for Christ (CFC) is a Catholic movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. Since its founding in 1981, CFC has established the community in more than 100 countries with active CFC and Family Ministries’ membership of more than half-a-million worldwide. The recognition of CFC as a national association of the lay faithful with juridical personality was granted by the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) in 1996.
In the year 2000, CFC was granted Vatican recognition ad experimentum as a private lay association of Pontifical right. In 2005 the Vatican gave its definitive and permanent recognition of CFCas a private international association of the faithful and approved its statutes. The recognition of an association constitutes a declaration of the ecclesiastical authority stating that the association is really in the Church, that everything in it is in agreement with the nature of the Church. Our oneness with the Catholic Church is expressed in the CFC Vision statement.
