Building the Church of the poor emanates from the Social Teachings of the Church and will be strengthened by the new formation teachings that will guide our posture towards our work for Total Christian Liberation. The programs are tools and ways for members of CFC to grow in loving the poor as Christ did.
ANCOP is the acronym for "Answering the Cry of the Poor". It is a program founded by CFC as part of its global efforts of Building the Church of the Poor. ANCOP pursues programs to help the poorest of the poor in the Philippines, especially in depressed areas. Among the active programs are the Child Sponsorship Program (CSP) and the Shelter Program. CSP enables sponsors to send children to school (primary, secondary and tertiary levels). The shelter program builds homes for our poor brethren.
