What does Christian Brothers CFC mean?
The Christian Brothers are a religious group of brothers founded in Ireland by Edmund Rice. They were founded for the education of poor boys and eventually ended up running schools all over Ireland and beyond. Religious orders usually have letters that indicate what they do or are initials of their names in Latin. CFC stands for 'Congregatio Fratrum Christianorum' which is the Latin for 'Congregation of Christian Brothers.'

CFC- chloro fluoro carbon. It's the gas that used to be used in refrigerators and aerosol cans. When it became clear that this gas was highly damaging to the ozone layer the c…ountries of the world agreed, at the Montreal Treaty, to stop using it. CFC can also stand for Congregatio Fratrum Christianorum, the Irish Christian Brothers, an order of Catholic monks that run schools.
CFC refers to the stratospheric ozone depleating molecule Chlorine Fluorine Carbon. Now outlawed, a single one of these chlorine molecules can destroy 100,000 Ozone molecules
Its Facere Et Docere, which means to do and to teach
No they are not blood brothers. Edge was born on 10/30/1973 and Christian was born on 11/30/1973. They are bff (best friends forever). They met each other in 1984 because Ad…am thought that Jay's ninja stars were cool. Their gimmick on WWE was brothers, but they are not blood brothers. They have different mothers. Adam "Edge" Copeland is a single child, Jay "Christian" Reso has siblings. Adam's mother's name is Judy
There are no CFCs as they where banned because they react with the ozone layer O3 but they where mostly used in Australia which is why there is an opening in the ozone layer. … CFCs are released when we use aerosol sprays, refridgerators and air conditioning units.
Damage The Ozone Layer Chloro Fluro Carbons breaks down the ozone layer into oxygen and therefore make holes in the ozone layer.
What is a Brother? As members of the Congregation of Christian Brothers, founded by Blessed Edmund Rice, we are lay religious, who profess vows of poverty, c…hastity, and obedience. We commit ourselves to a life of ministry and prayer within the community. In Brotherhood, we are called to fidelity to the Gospel of Jesus. In our response we acknowledge both our gifts and our need for continuing conversion. Our way of life leads to spiritual freedom and simplicity through humble service of the poor, in whom we especially find Jesus Christ who is Lord. "For me, the life of a Brother is about relationship-relationship with God through both personal and communal prayer; with my brothers living in community; and with those whom I serve in ministry." - Brother Kevin Griffith, C.F.C. What are vows? We promise poverty, chastity, and obedience as a radical demonstration of our faith in the power and meaning of Jesus for a world that often ignores or denies His message. Poverty frees us to live simply and to be giving of ourselves. The vow of Celibate Chastity allows us to live in the "family" of our community of brothers and to love equally all those with whom and for whom we minister. The vow of Obedience calls us to listen to the Spirit in our lives and to meet the needs of the Church. Our profession, received by the Church, commits us firmly to the mission of proclaiming the Good News. It unites us in love and loyalty to all members of the Congregation. What is the Ministry of the Christian Brothers? As Christian Brothers, we commit ourselves to Christian education on behalf of the materially poor in the confidence that in all our truly human interactions God is transforming us as well as the people we serve. As apostolic religious we are missioned by the Church for the evangelization of youth, and especially for the education and care of the materially poor. The mission is expressed through a variety of ministries. In each ministry we respond creatively to emerging needs in a changing world. "Teaching is the primary and most effective means available in the Church in order to influence the lives of a given generation. The goal of Christian education is to provide an atmosphere in which our young people can develop a healthy, functioning conscience." - Brother T. Andrew Prendergast, C.F.C. Why do the Christian Brothers live in Community? Brotherhood in community is a principal source of our companionship and a privileged context for our personal growth. Our personalities develop as each of us accepts responsibility to make a unique contribution to the life and mission of the community. It is from community that we carry our gifts to others. We in turn are enriched as the lives of others touch our own. What role does community prayer play? In our mission of evangelization, revealing and discovering anew our God, we need the constant support of community prayer. We pray together daily using the Scriptures as well as the Liturgy of the Hours and other sources. Living in true Brotherhood, we see such prayer together as central to our life and mission, as we allow the Word of God to shed light on our local situation and on the world beyond. "I just finished Mass and breakfast with the community and I'm getting ready for a baseball game with the school team. A Brother's life is about keeping a balance that rests on that rock foundation, Jesus. It's a blessing to be a Brother because you can find Jesus who is present in your students, in their families, in our neighborhood churches, in our Brothers' communities, and on the streets." - Brother Bill Sherlog, C.F.C. How do I learn more about the Christian Brothers and experience the Brothers' life? The Brothers offer opportunities to visit the communities to find out more about the lifestyle of a Christian Brother. The Christian Brothers also sponsor "discernment weekends" where a man interested in finding out more about the Brothers would have an opportunity to live in community for a weekend. The weekend involves special presentations, question and answer sessions, and opportunities for discussion about the vocation of a Brother. There are also opportunities for a man to participate in service programs affiliated with the Christian Brothers' ministry sites. If interested in participating in any of these opportunities, please contact the Vocation Office. Are there requirements for being a Christian Brother? The Christian Brothers require that a man be a high school graduate before being able to enter into the Contact Level Program of Brothers' formation. How do I apply for admission to the Christian Brothers? The first step is to contact the Vocation Office (www.cfcvocations.org). A candidate to the Christian Brothers will be asked to complete a formal application process. The candidate will also be asked to participate in several assessment interviews and will be asked to submit academic transcripts, an autobiography, a personal profile, two letters of recommendation, baptismal and confirmation certificates, and a letter to the Province Leader seeking admission to the formation program of the Christian Brothers.

CFC stands for 'Congregatio Fratrum Christianorum' which is Latin for 'Congregation of Christian Brothers.'
It is short for Chlorofluorocarbon. It is an organic compound that contains only carbon, chlorine, and fluorine produced as a volatile derivative of methane, ethane, and p…ropane. Many CFCs have been used as refrigerants, propellants, and solvents. The manufacture of such compounds has been phased out under the Montreal protocol because CFCs contribute to ozone depletion in the upper atmosphere.
