ECF News & Information
Classes for public school children will resume in September. Classes will meet every Sunday from 10 a.m. till 11 a.m. in the Junior High classrooms of La Salle Academy, next door to the church, during the school year. This change is to make it more convenient for our families and their children to attend Holy Ghost's Divine Liturgy at 9 a.m. each week. Registration for our Public School students is now open. Kindly use the e-form above or call the church office at 570-489-2353 to reserve your spot.
Please take this obligation seriously and put your child's religious education BEFORE all other activities. ECF not only teaches our children how to become closer to God through prayer, service, and knowledge, but it also teaches them what it is like to be an Eastern Rite Catholic, and the beautiful traditions of the Byzantine Catholic Church.
Students of La Salle Academy, Jessup will receive their Byzantine Religion classes at school as part of the curriculum and will not be required to attend ECF classes. They may be asked to participate in rehearsals for the Good Friday procession, First Penance, and First Holy & Corporate Communion. Notifications of these rehearsals will be sent home to the children involved.
