Couples for Christ
Couples for Christ (CFC) is a movement intended for the renewal and strengthening of Christian family life. The members have committed themselves to the Lord and to one another so that they may grow in maturity as men and women of God and fulfill their primary vocation of raising up families under the lordship of Jesus Christ and for the service of the Kingdom of God.
Families Following Christ
The Catholic families of this community strive to glorify God by personifying the Holy Family through love, prayer, humility and obedience to the Lord’s will. Focused on Christ, our mission is to strengthen families through faith formation, encourage them in community and support them in living a sacramental life.
All meetings are held in the Cody Enrichment Center at St. Joseph’s Parish in the Mandarin area of Jacksonville.

Teams of Our Lady
Teams of Our Lady is an international lay movement in the Catholic Church, designed to enrich marriage spirituality and make good marriages better. Teams provide a proven method of increasing and improving prayer life, which will help couples grow closer to God and each other. At the same time, their family will reap the benefits as well.
A team is comprised of five to seven couples whose marriage is recognized in the eyes of the Catholic Church. The team meets one time per month, rotating from one home to another. If a couple’s home cannot accommodate the entire team, the group can meet in a church meeting room or outside, if possible. Some teams might have a spiritual advisor or Priest Spiritual Counselor as part of their team. The Priest Spiritual Counselor comes to the meeting to provide his theological knowledge and expertise. The team shares a simple meal, prayer, sharing on the endeavors, and a study topic. The endeavors are the heart of the spirit of Teams. The team becomes a close community that can inspire one another through their living examples of faith, and share with one another their struggles and successes on their way to holiness. It is offered to couples from all stages of life (newly married, child rearing and empty nesters) throughout the world in order to help them live out their sacrament of marriage.
