CFC Conducts Christian Life Seminar in Parish

Couples for Christ - Foundation for Family & Life (CFC-FFL) is a Catholic movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. CFC-FFL works with Christian couples and establishes families committed to the work of evangelization and other community services. It grows mainly through localized units in different parishes.

The Christian Life Seminar (CLS) is the initiation course leading into a life in the Holy Spirit. More specifically, it is the entry point into CFC-FFL. It is an integrated course intended to lead seminar participants into a renewed understanding of God’s call to them as Christians and their commitment to Christian family life.

The CFC-FFL Chapter of San Lorenzo Ruiz Parish, under the servant leadership of Bro. Reggie Mercado, is conducting a Christian Life Seminar (CLS) which started last Saturday, July 16, 2011 at the SLRP Multi-Purpose Hall from 7:30-10:30pm. It will run for a total of 9 separate sessions held once a week every Saturday until September 10. The seminar is open to all Christian married couples of any age.

The CLS commenced with the CFC-FFL members and service team, led by Team Leader, Bro. Jules Siguenza, welcoming all the participants who came not only from surrounding areas under San Lorenzo Ruiz parish but from other parishes as well. Formal sessions started with a group prayer with everyone joining later on for a short but lively singing of worship songs. Then the first talk was given by Bro. Paul Price which was all about God’s Love. A third vital component of the CLS, the discussion groups, were formed and handled by different members of the chapter. Afterwards, everyone shared some snacks and time for fellowship.

It is God’s plan that the family be the basic unit of society. However, there are many forces in the world today that try to destroy that foundation. CFC-FFL’s mission is to rise in defense of the family and to strengthen it , through doing God’s works.

With it, we are inviting all couples to join the Christian Life Seminar (CLS). Help us continue to intensify the foundation of every family in our community. Not only does each couple develop a special relationship with God, they also will learn ways to nurture that relationship with abundant love and at the same time guide their children towards a better Christian life.

In CFC-FFL, a couple gains a new family of brothers and sisters and a strong environment of support for their needs in the nurturing the family. Journeying with us will allow God’s blessing to come their way as they begin to experience a better life.

Come and participate in the renewal and discover the power of the Holy Spirit’s work in your family.
