Singles For Christ
"Every Single Man and Woman Experiencing Christ."
“Single” refers to anyone within that age group who is free from any legal impediments to marriage. The pastoral care offered by the ministry, though, is not limited to those who are called for marriage, but includes as well those who may be considering either single blessedness or religious vocation as a state of life.
CFC-SFC was established in April 1993, when a group of about 40 single men and women, mostly from the Visayas Islands in the Philippines, met for a 3-day workshop in Kalibo, Aklan to talk about forming a ministry for single men and women under the leadership of CFC. It initially aimed to provide a Christian support environment for single men and women who want to follow Christ. However, SFC has taken a more pro-active stance with regard to providing that environment, by making sure that it brings Christ to wherever the singles are — the corporate setting, campuses, government institutions, even in prison and developing communities.

The Regional Conference (RECON) is a biennial gathering that brings together young adults from across Oceania for a weekend focused on drawing closer to Christ in the Catholic faith. The weekend event includes talks and sharings, meeting Jesus in prayer through worship and Sacraments, and connecting with like-minded young adults through discussion, games and entertainment. The conference is open to mature YFCs (21+) and SFC Plus (young adults 21 to 40 years of age).
I still remember my first SFC Conference. I was still active in Youth for Christ but there was a part of me that was searching for more. I vividly remember sitting in the crowd, listening to one of the most personal sharings I’ve heard after 11 years in the community. It was the first moment[…]
I have always looked forward to attending our Singles For Christ National Conferences. For me, it’s a God-given opportunity to have a weekend with Him – to spend time with Him through the Sacraments, to pray to Him in praise and worship, to hear and learn from the great talks, to actively participate in the[…]
In 2015, I had the honour of attending an Oceania SFC conference in Sydney. Last year, I was blessed enough to attend a National SFC conference in Adelaide. I always had my mind set on going to Adelaide however, I experienced a very busy year which made me doubt on going. However, God made a[…]
Travelling to another country to attend a conference is never easy. There are so many troubles and difficulties that come our way when preparing to go to a conference. But I am so thankful that I was still able to go and experience the 2015 RECON and was able to encounter Christ. I was able[…]
