ECF: Eastern Christian Formation
The eparchial Eastern Christian Formation (ECF) program uses the GOD WITH US Catechetical Series.
The series explores the unchangeable truth of the Christian message and the witness of the Eastern Catholic Church. Its purpose is to present the whole Christian doctrine as a unified message. The message imposes demands, brings consequences and establishes an ultimate goal: union with God.
Each individual parish, and indeed the whole faith-community must witness to a life in Christ that leads individuals more deeply into communal worship and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and his church.
Most importantly, the Eastern Christian Formation program helps young people develop a readiness to accept and to make their own the lifestyle and tradition of the community of believers.
