CFC is a lay Catholic movement dedicated to families. Founded in Manila in June 1981, it is currently present in more than a hundred countries. More than 50,000 Filipinos and delegates from other countries attended the annual event in Manila.
As a true Christian mission, CFC has become a movement to renew families and society. In 1995, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) declared it a private national association of lay people.
In 2005, it received the permanent approval of the Holy See as a private international association of the faithful under Canon Law.
