The Family Life Commission was established under PAX in 1971. Down the years it has organised seminars on Ovulation Method (1973), Natural Family Planning (1976, 2004), Young Christian Couples Encounter (1996), Marriage Encounter Weekend (1986), Marriage Enrichment Seminar (1999), Familaris Consortio (2002), Family Life and Pastoral Counselling (2002). After the Congress on the Family in 2007, a secretariat was formed to coordinate the activities of the parish family life committees, to look into the revision of the syllabus for pre-marriage course. Two other supporting units have been formed: the Catholic Family Service Centre and the Marriage Tribunal Office, both based in Sacred Heart Parish Centre Karamunsing. The mission of the commission
- To coordinate activities of Family Life Groups in the archdiocese.
