Disciple Membership

A Structured Path to Personal Sanctity

Disciple Membership Overview

Disciple Members of the Apostolate for Family Consecration (AFC) are single or married Catholic faithful who respond to God's universal call to holiness by living the spirituality of the AFC and by helping to carry out its ministry, as part of the AFC spiritual family, while maintaining the commitments and duties of their state in life.


Disciple Members are motivated by a desire to grow in holiness and participate in works of evangelization. Disciple Members balance their spiritual, family, apostolic, and career responsibilities and take seriously offering to God their time, talent, and treasure through the mission of the AFC.

Disciple Members live the AFC's spirituality of consecration through a commitment to daily prayer, regular formation, and apostolic service.

Disciple Members discern a call to life membership in the AFC while going through a progression of commitment levels. They are expected to live their Faith and to encourage others to do the same.
