CFM groups are parish groups of sacramentally married couples. Their aim is to help married couples and their families deepen and strengthen their Christian faith, thus becoming more and more committed in living out their Christian vocation in the world.
CFM groups all over the world use the well known method of Cardinal Josef Cardijn. According to his method of “Observe – Judge – Act”, group sharings are divided into three main parts:
Observe – personal experiences
Judge – evaluating arising questions or problems in the light of the Gospel
Act – making concrete commitments.
Belonging to a group yields wonderful fruits. Married couples grow as committed Christians, their faith gets deeper. Marriages improve, deepen, get stronger; family life is happier. Permanent friendships are formed between married couples. The presence of family groups strengthens parish communities and couples find their place in society more easily and more consciously.
