Religious Education

EASTERN CHRISTIAN FORMATION PROGRAMS

Holy Angels has a robust religious education program for parishioners of all ages called Eastern Christian Formation or ECF.  The ECF program for youth is held on Sundays following the Divine Liturgy and ends at 1130AM.  Teachers are vetted through the Eparchial Safe Environment Program and participate in annual training.  Classes are available for the following:

  • Pre-K/Kindergarten
  • Grades 1-2
  • Grades 3-5
  • Grades 6-8
  • Grades 9-12

In addition the Byzanteens participate in annual Youth Events and specific events are held during the year for women (Myhrr-Bearers) and male youth (Alive in Christ).

Adult Education programs occur locally at different times throughout the year.  Education opportunities are available online through the Sts. Cyril & Methodius Seminary.   http://online.bcs.edu/programs/course-descriptions/  Please see this website for information about tuition  and registration.

On each Friday during the Great Fast there will be a supper of Soup/Bread/Salad in the Hall following the 6PM Liturgy of Pre-sanctified Gifts along with a teaching from Fr. Brian Escobedo.
