Disciple Members are spiritually united with AFC Members in the USA, Russia, Nigeria, Belgium, and the Philippines. Together, they share in the graces obtained by the Masses, prayers, and good works of the AFC.
“Being Disciple Members of the AFC helps us in our everyday lives because we know
that we are part of a worldwide community, striving to bring their families closer to God.”
