“God in his deepest mystery is not a solitude but a family, since         

in himself fatherhood, sonship, and the essence of the family, which is love” Pope St. John Paul II

Covenantal Family Ministries (CFM) seeks to:

  • In adherence to the Church’s Magisterium and in accordance with Sacred Tradition, to teach and proclaim the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ to all members of God’s Family to help them grow in holiness through a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Be a resource on sound Catholic teaching to help all God’s children know the Lord Jesus Christ and his Church.
  • Set the world on fire for the love of the Triune God.

Our gatherings are quarterly.  Watch for dates and times in the bulletin

“As for me and my household, we will serve the LORD”. Joshua 24:15

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. John 14:6

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments”. John 14:1

“Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect”. Romans 12:2

“Seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness…” Matthew 6:33

“I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you by (the) grace (of Christ) for a different gospel (not that there is another). But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ”. Galatians 1:6

“Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.  Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground”.

Ephesians 6:10-13

“Come one, come all young, old, married, single, divorced or widowed, all are welcome.”

In the Gospel, Jesus says:   “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”  Matthew 28: 19-20

To Evangelize is to make the Good News of Jesus Christ known to those who do not know Him and to invite them to consider a relationship with Him and His Church.

All who are baptized are called to evangelize by the example of their lives as well as their knowledge of Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church, all of which reflect the depth of their personal journey of faith with Christ.

The New Evangelization is a call to each person to deepen his or her own faith, have confidence in the Gospel, and possess a willingness to share the Gospel. It is a personal encounter with the person of Jesus, which brings peace and joy. The New Evangelization provides the lens through which people experience the Church and world around them.

“Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.  Therefore, put on the armor of God, that you may be able to resist on the evil day and, having done everything, to hold your ground.”

 Ephesians 6:10-13
