Movimiento Familiar Cristiano Católico (Only in Spanish)
Communication and dialogue is emphasized between partners in our monthly meeting. There are 4 stages of 15 meetings, each meeting has a guide to follow. Part of this guide is to study and meditate on a reading from the Bible. Each group consists of 4 or 5 couples and a couple coordinator. The MFCC has about 15 active groups each year of 50 to 60 couples. Couples must be together and a single person cannot be part of a group without their partner.
