About Us

Welcome to our Website

The Alliance of Filipino Catholic Charismatic Prayer Communities (AFCCPC) is an umbrella and networking organization of Catholic prayer groups or communities, with Filipino membership, in the USA and Canada. We are an ethnic constituency of and participate with the National Service Committee of the Charismatic Renewal of the United States and share in its mission of stirring into flame the grace of Pentecost and strengthening the Catholic Charismatic Renewal with particular focus and emphasis on the needs of Filipinos.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be an alliance of Filipino Catholic charismatic prayer communities in North America, networked for evangelization, growth in life in the Spirit, fellowship, mutual support, sharing of Christian witness and resources; organized and unified to promote unity and to represent and be the voice of the Filipino Catholic Charismatic ethnic stream in North America; and shepherded by the clergy functioning as spiritual advisers.
