CFC Family Ministry
This whole month of June has been an exciting time for CFC Family ministry in Jacksonville. With the help of our spiritual director, Father Rafael, the Christian Life Program (CLP) that recently concluded was a tremendous success!
One of the highlights of this CLP was the simultaneous pray over session which was held during the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the Feast of St. John Baptist. What a powerful, spirit-filled evening that was.
To all the new members, welcome to the family! As the song goes, we’re glad that you have come to share your life with us. May we always be to you as God would have us be a family always there to be strong and to lean on.
And to all the service team members under the leadership of kuya Raul and ate Jaye, may God richly bless you and your whole family.
My dear brothers and sisters,
The Church Coordinator for the Diocese of St. Augustine, Trudy, has asked me and Dunn to form a team that will commit to standing up for LIFE and participate in our local community. I know Danny Schell has been helping organize this too. They are tapping on CFC Family Ministry because they know that we are pro-GOD, pro-FAMILY, pro-POOR and pro-LIFE which is humbling that our name alone is a testimony of our love for God. But when we can live up to our name, that’s when we start to truly make a difference.
There are approximately 3,700 babies getting aborted every day in the U.S. alone (http://www.abortionno.org/Resources/fastfacts.html). I don’t believe the parents will let these children get killed if they know that Jesus is real and that Jesus is LIFE. Our work of evangelization is clearly more urgent out there in the sidewalk. It’s amazing and wonderful that we worship God in our churches. Let’s continue to do that but even more so let’s go out and tell the world of HIS love.
I thank those who have been involved in the past 40 Days for Life prayer rallies. We now have a family for LIFE that prays in front of Planned Parenthood every Friday and Saturday from 6:30am to 9:30am. You don’t have to be out there the whole time. It’s great if you can but at least stop by and say a prayer. Join us brothers and sisters. Don’t look at your service as a burden but rather as an opportunity to express your love to Our Heavenly Father.
