Pay It Forward

for Other Families
Have you enjoyed the peacefulness of Catholic Familyland® (CFL)?

Many families and individuals have experienced a sense of peace at CFL, which we can only attribute to God’s grace. However, it takes tremendous effort to keep these holy grounds beautiful and functional so that many more families can come and experience that peace too.

You can lighten the load.

At the St. Joseph Work Fest, pay it forward for other families by helping the AFC with a variety of maintenance, groundskeeping, cleaning, and other projects.
