How to Join CFC

Who can join Couples for Christ?

Any validly married Catholic couple can become members of CFC. Although a Catholic movement/organisation, CFC remains open to having non-Catholic Christians as members.

How do I become a member of CFC?

Those who want to join CFC will have to go through a Christian Life Program (CLP).

What is Christian Life Program?

The Christian Life Program or CLP is an integrated course intended to lead the couple into a renewed understanding of God's call to them as Christians. It runs for a total of 13 separate sessions, held once a week. At the end of the seminar, couple-participants are invited to dedicate themselves to the Lord as CFC members and to commit to participate actively in the life of the community and of the Church through regular prayer meetings, attendance in community assemblies and teachings, participation in parish life.

CLP graduates are then grouped into cell groups called "households", consisting of at least 4 and up to 7 couples under the pastoral care supervision of a household head.

The households are an essential feature of community life for the adults. They meet once a week, to discuss the Gospel, share testimonies about their own struggles to live according to Christ’s example, and to support one another in their spiritual journey.

CFC members are expected to work actively for the renewal of their own families, on the premise that the family is the basic unit of society.


Do I have to pay anything?

There are no fees or any monetary expenses required from participants. The only investment required is time and openness.

What should I do if I am interested to attend the Christian Life Program (CLP)?
