CFC-FFL COMMUNITY PRAYER 2018

Great and Almighty God, you are our Father in heaven, and you destine us to be as you are, as you call us to holiness and perfection. You set us as priests in our homes, and we offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to you.

Lord Jesus, we are your body on earth, a people of your own. You give us to each other as brethren and co-workers, caring for and loving each other and building up our community. Help us to grow in authentic servanthood as we renew the family and serve your Church.

Holy Spirit, you send us forth to proclaim the good news of salvation in Jesus. We are your holy warriors. Continue to equip and strengthen us, empower us to overcome the enemy, and let us bring your righteousness to the ends of the earth.

Triune God, we belong to you. We are nothing apart from you. But in you and with you and through you, we are destined for greatness. Send us forth, not to be high and mighty, but to be low and lowly. May all the glory be yours, now and forever.

Mother Mary, your soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, and the Mighty One has done great things for you. As your beloved children, lead us along the right paths, until we attain to the greatness that is our destiny.

Amen.

by Lianne Laurence
OTTAWA, December 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau will ban any employer from receiving summer job grants for students if the employer doesn't first sign an “attestation” that they agree with abortion and transgender "rights." The new criteria were sent to all MPs and will be made public when the Canada Summer Jobs Program officially opens December 19, 2017.

Canada Demands Pro-abortion, Pro-LGBT Loyalty Oath for Businesses  

December 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The tolerance of Justin Trudeau and his progressive government has struck again, just in time for Christmas­ and this time, it comes in the form of a demand that any organization seeking to apply for funding from the Canada Summer Jobs Program first give an “attestation” that they support an entire laundry list of far-left causes, including abortion, transgenderism, and the redefinition of marriage. This new ideological purity test will automatically exclude millions of Canadian Christians, Jews, Sikhs, and Muslims­essentially, anyone who differs from the government position on any “progressive” cause.





CFC-Singles for Family and Life

 

What is CFC Singles for Family and Life (CFC-SFL)?

CFC-SFL is a ministry of Couples for Christ Foundation for Family and Life (CFC-FFL) that focuses on the evangelization of single men and women aged 21-40 years old.

CFC-SFL provides an environment to help these single men and women to live a full and meaningful life with Christ at the center of it.

CFC-SFL is a Catholic Ministry where single men and women can experience Jesus Christ, know their state of life, be effective and efficient in their workplace, be a strong witness of God's love and faithfulness in their family, peers, and community, where everyone can experience true brotherhood and sisterhood having God at the center of it.

 

What is the CFC-SFL entry point?

The Singles candidate attends a 9-week Christian Life Seminar (CLS) after which they receive support through regular Household (cell group) Meetings, Prayer Assemblies and fellowship with other brothers and sisters.

Three months later, the candidate will go through the Covenant Recollection for an even deeper growth in their relationship with God and for a better understanding of their commitment to God as a community. At this point, the Singles candidate will decide whether he or she desires to enter into this covenant to be a community member of CFC-SFL.

Worship

We nurture our personal relationship with the Lord through personal prayer time and charismatic worship as a community.

Discipleship

We are all called to discipleship in accordance to how God calls each one uniquely. In SFL, opportunities for service are provided such as giving talks, leading a household, serving in the parish, ministering in the prisons, teaching catechism to children as well as other ways to lead to the restoration of life as a whole.

Ministry

Our spiritual formation is continuous through our regular teachings and activities about God's promises and plan, Scripture as well as our veneration to our Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor.

We also have an annual World Singles Congress wherein SFL members from all over the world gather in one place and be nourished by God's message to the community for the year.

Evangelism

We are witnesses of God's love and faithfulness by the way we live our lives. We hope that others will come to know God's saving power and, through our example, be led to know and love Him more.

As an evangelistic community, we also go on mission trips to spread God's message of love and hope to other places within and outside of the country.

Fellowship

We relate with each other in brotherhood and sisterhood. After the CLS, the Singles are divided into household (cell) groups composed of 5-7 members each. This household meets at least twice a month in prayer, personal sharing and sometimes just having fun together.
