Christian Life Communities

CLC stands for Christian Life Community. CLC’s are small faith sharing groups that are based on three pillars: community, spirituality, and service. We follow the inspiration of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Thus, we are part of a worldwide body of small faith communities, present in almost 60 countries around the world.
