Your Gifthelps families become what they are
We invite you to join us in this mission. Whether you become a monthly donor or make a one-time gift, your generosity supports families on their journey to Heaven. Together, we can help families become what they are meant to be—holy families.
The Apostolate for Family Consecration® (AFC) supports parents in their indispensable role of passing on the Catholic Faith to their children. We carry out this ministry through our main outreaches:
Our faith-filled and fun events create solidarity, build hope, and inspire a journey of faith to help families become what they are meant to be.
- Holy Family Fest—a God-centered Catholic family vacation
- mini Holy Family Fest—a Holy Family Fest experience in a weekend
- Totus Tuus “Consecrate Them in Truth” Family Conference—a weekend for learning the truths of the Catholic Faith and how to share them
- Alone with God Retreats—silent retreats for adults
- Duc in Altum Youth Retreats—weekend retreats helping young people discover God’s love for them
2) Bring Holiness Home Portal
Our free web app, the Bring Holiness Home Portal, is a growing collection of Faith resources that supports parents as they seek to bring the Faith to life for their children. It includes resources that are totally faithful to the Magisterium:
- Family Catechism App
- Be Not Afraid Family Hour® videos
- Consecration In Truth® Curriculum
- Peace of Heart Forum® videos
Families can use our growing collection of videos, books, and other media to create enjoyable, interactive and God-centered family experiences in their own homes.
We offer two missionary programs for young people, to help them strengthen their relationship with God, serve families, and experience a life of prayer and community.
- Service Corps—16–17 year old men and women
- Alumni Corps—18–24 year old men and women
Men and women who feel called by God to pray, work, and sacrifice for families can become AFC Members. We have two different membership branches:
- Disciple Members—married men and women who are committed to living and sharing the AFC’s mission in their daily lives
- Catholic Corps Members—celibate men and women who leave all behind and give their lives totally to God in support of families
How the Ministry Is Funded
In order to carry out this extensive ministry for families, we need funding for our outreaches and programs. Most of our funding comes from donations—thanks to the generosity and sacrifice of many families. Monthly and one-time gifts make up more than 75% of our overall funding. Monthly donations sustain us on an ongoing basis, while one-time donations bridge the gap to enable us to meet our yearly needs.
When you donate to this mission, you participate in a critically-needed movement that builds families of faith and creates a family-centered culture.
Trusting in God’s Providence & Your Generosity
The dedicated people behind this ministry are mostly made up of celibates living out their vocations through this movement, along with missionaries, and AFC Members. By their generosity and sacrifice, this mission is able to advance for families. Our employed staff are of a small number in proportion to the magnitude of the work that we undertake.
We appeal to your generosity to help us strengthen families in the Catholic Faith. Your collaboration with us enables this ministry to support parents in their primary role of transmitting the Faith to their children.
As we rely on God’s providence and care, we invite you to trust in Him as well. “God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that you may have always have enough of everything and may provide in abundance for every good work.… You will be enriched in every way for great generosity, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God” (2 Cor 9:8, 11).
