Why Be an Ambassador?Reach Families & Change Hearts
Families matter. It is within the family that the human person receives the gift of faith and comes to know God. But in today’s society, families are under attack. Souls are at stake. Catholic families need support to live their faith—now more than ever.
You can join the AFC’s mission to support families in the Faith and change hearts through the message of Family Consecration. It’s so easy. Just invite one family (or a few) to come to an AFC event with you next year. That’s it!
Can you help us reach a record number of families with the message of Family Consecration in 2020? We can’t do it without you.
To get started, check out the materials and helpful hints below.

Helpful HintsSharing Your Experience Is Easy
Reach out on purpose:
You can invite friends, family members, or members of your parish or social group. Is there someone you wish could have been with you at an AFC event? Do you know anyone who needs encouragement in their faith journey? These would be great people to invite.
Tell about your experience:
Share what was meaningful to you when you attended an AFC event. There are no wrong answers here! When it comes to matters of the Faith, sharing your personal witness is one of the best ways to reach out to others.
Show pictures or videos:
“A picture is worth a thousand words.” If you have photos or videos from your time at Catholic Familyland®, show them! Pictures and videos can spark stories that give people a better feel for what they can expect at an AFC event.
Follow up later:
After you invite someone to an AFC event, check back in to see if they’ve thought about it more. Let them know when you’ve registered and see if they are ready to register too.
