Eastern Christian Formation (ECF)

Our Eastern Christian Formation (ECF) Program is provided for our young people to educate them about their faith and the spiritual traditions of the Byzantine Rite.  It meets every scheduled Sunday morning after the 9:00 AM Sunday Liturgy in our former school building.

It is essential that parents and students give their full cooperation to the parish program. This begins with consistent attendance and participation in the Sunday Divine Liturgy as well as the Religion Class. It is every parent’s responsibility to insure the religious education of their children! As the Author of our Liturgy, St. John Chrysostom once said, “There is no greater calling than the education of our youth in the faith.”
   The program is an offering of our parish; in turn, may everyone offer the very best of themselves for this program!!! 

The 2017 - 2018 Catechists are:
Pre K to 1st grade:  Ms. Yvonne Quandel and Ms. "B" Buchkarick
2nd to 4th grades:  Ms. Marie Wanchick
