Who We Are

Helping You Thrive in Your Family Ministry

The Catholic Family Life Association (CLFA) offers support and professional enrichment to those who minister to families. Our goal is to foster a family perspective and advocate for family in the Church and society.

Formerly known as the National Association of Catholic Family Life Ministers (NACFLM), we recently changed our name to the Catholic Family Life Association to reflect our expanding outreach to individuals, families and dioceses. Our core mission remains the same: to serve family life ministers.

Whether you work with spouses, engaged couples, singles, grandparents or families in crisis, you’ll get the resources you need to help families live out their God-given vocation to love.
