ECFL Baptism
Early Catholic Family Life Training Day
Early Catholic Family Life (ECFL) is an 8-session, 2-hour program for parishes to engage and connect young families (with children 0-6 years old) and to foster a culture of faith in the home in the earliest stages of family life. We will be hosting a leadership training day at the Catholic Pastoral Centre (4th Floor, 1155 Yonge Street, Toronto) on Saturday, January 14, 2023 (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) for parishes in the Archdiocese of Toronto who will pilot the ECFL program between January and December 2023. Participants must be approved by their pastor and the Office of Formation for Discipleship prior to attending the training. Space is limited and priority will be given to new parish teams.
