WHO ARE WE?

ANCOP stands for ANswering the Cry of the Poor. It is a program founded by Couples for Christ (CFC), a faith based Vatican recognized international lay organization of the faithful that has a worldwide membership and active in over 100 countries and dependent territories, and was made for the purpose of consolidating CFC’s effort in BUILDING THE CHURCH OF THE POOR. Shelter building for the poor and education sponsorship are among its many other programs. For more information, visit ANCOP Global:  https://cfcancop.org/about-us

THe ANCOP VISION

Families in the Holy Spirit Sharing Christ’s Transforming Love with the Poor
This enhanced vision of ANCOP underscores clearly its connectedness to CFC whose vision is to be “Families in the Holy Spirit renewing the face of the earth.” CFC, through its two-fold mission of Building the Church of the Home and Building the Church of the Poor through ANCOP will renew the face of the earth by building up strong families ready to share God’s transforming love with the poor. The statement also emphasizes that it is CFC and all its members who are at the forefront of the vision and who will be its “heart and soul.” ANCOPs enhanced vision carries with it two (2) of the most important pastoral subjects of Pope Francis’ papacy – the family and the poor.

THe ANCOP MISSION

We foster an environment of caring and sharing in the societies where we are present. We engage a widening network of partners to achieve Social Justice and Total Christian Liberation. We help ensure the dignity of the poor.

Tagline “ANCOP…Where Caring and Sharing Happen.”

Goal 40 @ 40 – Reaching out to 40,000 families in 5 years
This means that CFCs mission with the poor through ANCOP will bring God’s transforming love to 40,000 poor families through its various programs, including Values Formation and, even in some instances, the Christian Life Program and the YFC and SFC camps, within 5 years – culminating in CFCs 40th year anniversary in 2021.
