The Christian Life Movement (CLM) is an international ecclesial movement founded in Lima, Peru, in 1985 by Luis Fernando Figari.  It is led by The Fraternas (Marian Community of Reconciliation).  It was approved by the Holy See in 1994 as an International Association of Christian Faithful of Pontifical Right. It is active in several countries throughout the five continents.

The spirituality of the Christian Life Movement is expressed in the motto: "Through Christ to Mary, through Mary more fully to the Lord Jesus".  In the Mother of the Lord we see the model par excellence of Christian life and fidelity to God’s plan.

CLM members seek to have a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and are convinced that only in Him can the answers to the deepest yearnings of the human being be found. The CLM seeks to integrate life and concrete daily experience with faith. They believe that the fulfillment of the whole person is found in answering God’s call to be saints in daily life. Thus they promote faith in the mind through formation, faith in the heart through prayer and faith in action through apostolate. 

The identity of the CLM is signified by our calling to apostolate; it is at the core of our life and action. The emphases of our apostolate are: youth, culture, families and the most needy.  Some of the CLM Sydney initiatives are: rosary groups, retreats, youth groups, groups for couples / adults, leadership training and formation, courses and talks on various topics, spiritual direction (including vocational discernment), preparation for the Sacraments, congresses, community service and movie nights.
