Join our AFF Team and take part in the New Evangelization...

“Life grows by being given away, and it weakens in isolation and comfort.  Indeed, those who enjoy life most are those who leave security on the shore and become  excited by the mission of communicating life to others.  Thus, the Church summons all Christians to take up the task of evangelization…”  (Pope Francis)
