The Apostolate for Family Consecration

The Apostolate for Family Consecration

 The Apostolate for Family Consecration (also known as “The Apostolate”) is an international association ministering to the family. Founded in 1975 by Mr. Jerry Coniker and his late wife, Gwen, The Apostolate’s primary focus is to consecrate families in the Truth using the modern means of social communications according to the Eucharistic, Marian and family-centered spirituality of Pope John Paul II.

 Parents of 13 and grandparents of 54, the Coniker’s have dedicated their life and family to The Apostolate and continue to receive the support of Pope John Paul II and many bishops, priests and lay movements worldwide.  The “Catholic Corps”, consecrated celibate men and women who dedicate their lives to serve families, currently represent the majority of the members who attend to the day- to-day operations of running the 24 hour Familyland Television Network, the 950-acre Catholic Familyland and mission centers in the Mexico and the Philippines.  The vast majority of The Apostolate members are couples who volunteer their time to implement the Apostolate for Family Consecration’s Lay Ecclesial Teams’ (LETs) programs in their parishes and communities.


Currently, the Apostolate for Family Consecration has mission centers operating in the United States, Mexico, Belgium and the Philippines.  Its programs are also being used in Africa and India.  Its inter-related ministries include Lay Ecclesial Teams, Be Not Afraid Family Hours, Familyland Television Network, Catholic Familyland, and the Consecration in Truth Catechetical Series.
