Eastern Christian Formation Program

Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it”

                                                                                                                                             (Proverbs 22:6)


The Sunday Eastern Christian Formation (ECF) program was established to provide Religious Education to those children of the parish that attend public school.  Classes are held every Sunday from 9:30  –  10:25.  The course curriculum is the God With Us series.  Class activities include basic lesson study from the text with emphasis on being a member of the Church, as study of the Liturgical year Eastern Rite prayers and Saints; students are taught the values and structure and priorities in their Church life.  They learn about our Hierarchy and clergy.

Those children preparing for their First Solemn Communion that attend public school are required to participate in the program which is a two year study program.

Following their receiving their Solemn Communion, they continue in the program through High School.  Registration for class takes place the last day of the school year or by contacting Fr. Andriy Dudkevych or Sister Cecelia Sworin, SSMI.

All parents and families are encouraged to enroll their children in this weekly study program to help understand our Faith and our role in the Body of Christ and that God is with us at all times.  Every parent is responsible for the Christian formation and spiritual development of their child for eternal life with God. Enroll your child in this program !
