Eastern Christian Formation

As we Christians sojourn on our earthly pilgrimage, let us ascribe to a formation process by which we conform more and more to the likeness of God.  Our faith teaches us that what we pray is what we believe. Therefore, the primary “classroom” for Christian formation is the church, and, with the Eucharist as our most necessary nourishment, the primary guides in formation are the prayers and hymns of our tradition, especially those that are written in Sacred Scripture and proclaimed in the Liturgy of the Word.  We nevertheless benefit from a less formal environment for the reading, studying, questioning, and discussing of our Byzantine Catholic spirituality and teachings.  Religious Education or Eastern Christian Formation (E.C.F.) at our parish is for ages Preschool to grade 12 and seeks to provide for these needs.
