"Jesus' disciples and Christian stewards recognize God as the origin of life, giver of freedom, and source of all things. We are grateful for the gifts we have received and are eager to use them to show our love for God and for one another. We look to the life and teaching of Jesus for guidance in living as Christian stewards...Stewards of God's gifts are not passive beneficiaries. We cooperate with God in our own redemption and in the redemption of others." (To Be a Christian Steward, A Summary of the U.S. Bishops' Pastoral Letter on Stewardship, 1992)
We look to the life and teaching of Jesus for guidance in living as Christian stewards...
In this "Catholic Giving" area of our website, you will find information on the charitable giving opportunities established by the Catholic bishops of the United States to support the Church and those in need at home and abroad. They are one way Catholics can connect with the universal Church's work of building faith and lifting up the least among us.
Jesus dismissed the crowds and went into the house. His disciples approached him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field." He said in reply, "He who sows good seed is the Son of Man, the field is the world, the good seed the children of the kingdom. The weeds are the children of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as weeds are collected and burned (up) with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear.
CFC Kids for Christ (KFC) is a family ministry of Couples for Christ (CFC). It is a means of supporting CFC’s mission of bringing families back to the plan of God by providing an environment that would assist the CFC parents in fulfilling this mission.
As a response to Jesus’ call, CFC Kids for Christ will help the children enjoy a relationship with Jesus Christ in an environment that is fun and life-giving in the company of their friends, and create an atmosphere where Christian values can be shared, practiced, developed, and experienced.
CFC Kids for Christ aims to provide a Christian support environment for kids of Couples for Christ members between the ages of 4-12. Owing to the wide age range covered by the ministry, we have set programs for the Junior Kids, those of ages 4 to 8 and the Senior Kids, those of ages 9 to 12.

Singles for Christ
CFC Singles for Christ (SFC) is one of the family ministries of Couples for Christ (CFC). It was founded to cater to the needs of single men and women from 21 to 40 years of age. “Single” refers to anyone within that age group who is free from any legal impediments to marriage. The pastoral care offered by the ministry, though, is not limited to those who are called for marriage, but includes as well those who may be considering either single blessedness or religious vocation as a state of life.
It initially aimed to provide a Christian support environment for single men and women who want to follow Christ. However, SFC has taken a more pro-active stance with regard to providing that environment, by making sure that it brings Christ to wherever the singles are -- the corporate setting, campuses, government institutions, even in prison and developing communities. This is in alignment with CFC`s thrust of rapid, massive and global evangelization.
Servants of the Lord
CFC Servants of the Lord (SOLD) aims to provide a Christian support environment for single mature men. It is a parallel ministry of the CFC HOLD but directed towards the mature men.
Entry point to the CFC Handmaids and Servants of the Lord program is through a Christian Life Program (CLP). Pastoral formation is being given separately to both ministries after the CLP through household meetings, assemblies, teachings and trainings, international conferences, Enrichment Retreats and many more teachings directed towards the needs of matured men & women of Christ.
Handmaids of the Lord
Handmaids of the Lord (HOLD) was established by Couples for Christ (CFC) in response to God’s call for a holistic family ministry. It is a work of Christ that raises up Christian women with Mary as their model, thus winning the world for Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. It is a Christian renewal and support ministry for mature women such as single parents, widows, separated or divorced women, single mature women, married women whose husbands are based in another state or country, or are, for some reason, not able to participate in the CFC and religious affiliation.
