History
 

The Center for Family Ministries (CEFAM) was formally instituted in 1987, with the involvement of three Jesuits: Fr. Ruben Tanseco, S.J., Fr. Nilo Tanalega, S.J., and Fr. Teodulo Gonzales, S.J.. It was later registered as a non-stock, non-profit corporation with the Securities and Exchange Commission with the following objective:

To aid in the promotion and enrichment of the Filipino family as a ‘domestic church’, a community of love, justice, freedom and peace, both within the home and in its social role and responsibility to the nation and to the world; to focus its direction on the multiplication of competence, the training of others (lay persons, clerics and Sisters), with the hope of reaching out to all sectors of Philippine Society.

Throughout the years, the Center has had an increasing number of graduates, both in the Professional Diploma Program and the Master of Arts Degree in Pastoral Ministry. CEFAM’s direct counseling services have helped individuals, couples and families through their journey of self-awareness, acceptance and love. Seminar-workshops and talks are being conducted, both at the Center and upon request from schools, organizations, corporations, and government agencies. Finally, CEFAM’s Daluyan Program for the Poor has been expanding its services particularly at Payatas, at the North Triangle Alliance relocation area in Montalban, and at Mt. Puro, Calawis, Antipolo.

CEFAM, together with its many dedicated laypartners, professional and administrative staff, is the official family apostolate of the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus.
