Eastern Christian Formation

ECF - Eastern Chistian Formation

As his Ascension, Our Lord Jesus asked that the Good News be preached to every creature. The Eastern Christian Formation (ECF) Program at St. Gabriel’s aims to teach the Good News of Jesus Christ to all our parish children from 4 years of age until they finish high school. 

For instruction books we use the God With Us series approved by our bishops, to teach both the truths of our Christian faith and the traditions of our Byzantine Catholic Church. 

Classes are held every second and fourth Sunday for one hour after Divine Liturgy, from 11:30am to 12:30pm, from September until the second week in June. 

The students go on a summer trip to a local attraction such as Shark Reef, or the Natural History Museum. Our goal is that our students will know and love the Lord, and live a life pleasing to Him.
