November 2022 Newsletter
We're excited to announce that Randy Christensen was re-elected as AFC President for a 6-year term during our recent General Assembly. The weekend gathering of more than 70 AFC Members was a beautiful celebration of the growth of our mission. In addition to electing the AFC President, our Members voted on changes to our governing statutes.

Due to a number of requests, we're hosting an alternative to our silent retreats. This Advent Retreat is not a silent retreat and therefore provides a more interactive experience. Enjoy the sacraments and prayers as well as small group discussions and socializing. We're also really excited about what the TOR sisters have to share!
National Catholic Register
The National Catholic Register recently published an article about the AFC written by Alex McKenna, a graduate of Franciscan University who grew up coming to Catholic Familyland®. The article highlights our ministry's growth since the COVID-19 pandemic and our ongoing efforts to support families to grow in their Catholic Faith.
"Going on this discernment retreat provided me the time and the resources to truly just be with the Lord and be in His presence and His love. I was reminded ultimately of my worth in His eyes and how He truly just wants what's best for us. I'm really thankful that the Catholic Corps didn't pressure us. I could genuinely tell they just wanted us to find God's will for our lives. I strongly encourage anyone who is wanting to get to know the Lord more and what His will is for them to come out to a retreat like this. Just have that quiet time to hear God's voice, to be in His love and be in His peace.
