Couples for Christ
Romy & Beth Pascual - (310) 769 0017 - e-mail
Couple for Christ (CFC) is a movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. It is an association of Christian couples who have committed themselves to the Lord and to another, so that they may grow into maturity as men and women of God and fulfill their primary vocation of raising up their families under the lordship of Jesus Christ and for the service of the Kingdom of God. Couples for Christ is a work of Christ which raises up Christian couples and establishes Christian families committed to the work of evangelization and winning the world for Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. It grows mainly through the establishment of localized units in different parishes.
Our Christian Life program meets every Friday, 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., from June to August every year. The Christian Life Program (CLP) is an integrated course leading into a renewed understanding of God's call to us as Christian couples. It is divided into three modules of four sessions each. Each session consists of a talk, group discussion, and some time for fellowship.
Join us in June! The different topics of the talks are as follows:
1. God's Love
2. Who is Jesus Christ?
3. What it Means to be a Christian
4. Repentance and Faith
5. The Christian Ideal: Loving God
6. Loving Your Neighbor
7. The Christian Family
8. Life in the Holy Spirit
9. Receiving the Power of the Holy Spirit
10. Growing in the Spirit
11. The Life and Mission of the Couples for Christ
12. Transformation in Christ - Dedication

Join us as we uncover the relationship between God and people – and that means between God and us

We open with prayer and close with refreshments. Cost is minimal: about $12 for books, several times a year.

The main purpose of The Grupo Guadalupano is to honor Our Lady of Guadalupano as the Mother of God and the "Empress of the Americas". To do this the group has taken charge of her feast day celebration (December 12), keeping alive the traditions and faith of our fathers. During the year, the Group holds a monthly sale of "pandulce" (sweetbread). The proceeds help pay for the celebration and for two $500 scholarships given to Senior students of Latin descent from Leuzinger, North, or Lawndale high schools. In Spring a dance is held as a fundraiser. In Summer a picnic is held for the sole purpose of making community.
The Group meets the second Sunday of the month, 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
