Holy Protection Faith Formation Programs


The Eastern Christian Formation (ECF) program, for Preschool through 8th grade, 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.

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. For more information about our ECF program please email Fr. Dcn. Basil at basil.balke@mounttaborcounseling.com

High School Faith Formation

How does the Gospel, as expressed by the Eastern Church, affect my life today?

Fr. Dcn. Basil facilitates an Eastern Formation program for High School students on a regular basis aimed at answering the question “why should the Gospel matter in my life”. This year the High Schoolers are examining personal prayer within the Byzantine tradition, and how it can be applied to their daily lives. For more information please email Fr. Dcn. Basil at Basil.Balke@holyprotection.org
