Your GiftSupports Families in the Faith
The ministry of the Apostolate for Family Consecration (AFC) supports parents in their indispensable role of passing on the Faith in their family. We carry out this mission through our main outreaches:
Faith-filled and fun events that create solidarity, build hope, and inspire
families in their journey of Faith:
- Holy Family Fests – a week-long getaway of faith, family & fun
- Mini Holy Family Fests – a Holy Family Fest experience in a weekend
- Alone with God – silent retreat for adults
- Duc In Altum – youth retreat
2) Bring Holiness Home
Faith formation tools for families to spend time together every week to learn
and share the Faith with one another, empowering parents to be the primary
teachers of the Faith to their children:
- Family Catechism
- Be Not Afraid Family Hour video episodes
- Family Hour Guides
- Consecration in Truth Curriculum
- Peace of Heart Forum videos
All tools can be accessed through an online portal. To have the Faith come alive
all year long for families. To have fun, dynamic, God-experiences in the comfort of your own home within the intimacy of your own family.
3) Support Communities
Dedicated parents, singles, and celibates who come together to pray, work, and
sacrifice for families, while growing deeper in their Faith, and reaching out to others:
- Lay Evangelization Teams – neighborhood groups
- Disciple Members – committed to living and sharing the spirituality and mission of the AFC
- Catholic Corps – celibate men and women who lay down their lives in singular devotion to Christ in support of families
- Alumni Corps & Service Corps – young adult & high school volunteers
Funding the Ministry
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 through the generosity and sacrifice of families. Our one-time and monthly gifts make up more than 75% of our overall funding. Monthly donations sustain us on an ongoing basis, and one-time donations bridge the gap to enable us to meet our yearly needs.
When you donate to this mission, you tangibly participate in a critically-needed movement that builds families of Faith, creates a family-centered culture, and imparts graces to you in proportion to the sacrifice you make.
The Mission in Action
The dedicated people behind this ministry are mostly made up of celibates living out their vocations through this movement, volunteers & 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 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. “And 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.” (2 Cor. 9:8) “You will be enriched in every way for great generosity, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.” (2 Cor. 9:11)
