September 2020 Newsletter

Dear AFC Family,

We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You, because by Your holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.

As I shared at the Holy Family Fest℠ this summer, you are a shareholder in the AFC’s mission. We need your help to make sure that other families hear about Catholic Familyland® and the ministry we do here. Could you take a few minutes this week to share this gift we’ve been given with other families? READ MORE

Pray the Rosary & Offer Penance: September 13 Fatima Apparition


“Continue to pray the Rosary in order to obtain the end of the war,” the Lady told the children. Then she spoke about the miracle Lucia had asked for. “In October, Our Lord will come, as well as Our Lady of Sorrows and Our Lady of Mount Carmel. St. Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world.”  READ MORE

AFC Changing Lives


This was our first week long Holy Family Fest with 7 children ranging from 17 years to 8 months old. Everyone was so friendly. The range of activities was wonderful and we appreciated the safe fun atmosphere. Everyone had a great time! When we were driving away our 5 and 8 year olds begged us to come back next year, followed by a plea from the teenagers, "We HAVE to come back next year!" To get this reaction from teenagers who knew no one when we arrived is amazing to hear as a parent—you have definitely earned 5 stars!! Thank you for a wonderful family building week! We look forward to coming back again next year!  — Andrea  READ MORE
