You may wonder what an annual membership gift means for CCL. Well, it means everything! Because the real question to ask is, how much does an annual membership mean for marriage and family in the Church today? This is a unique time in the history of the Church and our apostolate. Now, perhaps more than ever, lay men and women are called upon to become active participants in proclaiming the truth and beauty of the Good News. For this reason, CCL has created a membership model that allows members to play a larger role in creating a culture of life and love.
Our mission is to build joy-filled marriages by teaching NFP. But the way we teach has changed over the years, especially as technology has evolved. Our classes have better pedagogical techniques and we now have data that show young couples are responding to our message, even in today’s increasingly hostile culture to the Church’s teaching on sexuality.
Pope Francis encourages all of us to “be bold and creative in this task of rethinking the goals, structures, style and methods of evangelization,” and we have prayerfully discerned what that means for CCL. We want to be active evangelists going to the people to share the truth and beauty of NFP!
Just as we’ve evolved our teaching methods and message over the years, we have updated our membership model as well. In the past, people received certain benefits from CCL because of being a member. But we no longer want people to think they can’t receive the benefits CCL has to offer simply because they aren’t a member. Nor do we want CCL to just be some association of like-minded people. We want CCL to bring couples at every stage in their faith journey to learn and practice NFP in a welcoming, educational and supportive family.
Membership has changed for the better. There are more levels, more benefits, and most importantly better communication between you and CCL all in the name of service to you and our joint mission. You can see the various membership levels and their benefits in the graphs below.
