*About Family and Community Meetings:

Family & Community Meetings included in this book are optional. Groups may decide to schedule them at any time of the year, although some chapters suggest them as actions. These meeting plans are offered as models. Individual CFM action groups may wish to create a somewhat different event. The main focus is to engage the whole family and to invite perspective CFM members, both from the parish and from other parishes, to join and get a feel for the Christian Family Movement.
