Eastern Catholic Formation Classes (ECF)

Eastern Catholic Formation Classes (ECF)

Religious instruction for the children of St. Nicholas Church has always been an integral part of our parish life. From the early years of the church, when Mr. Kormosh taught the children religion and Rusin grammar, to today, St. Nicholas Church has always been able to count on volunteers to staff our program.

During the late 1940's and 1950's, we were fortunate to have the good Sisters of St. Basil the Great come to our church through the summer months to provide instruction. Volunteer bus drivers would drive throughout the town and surrounding areas, providing transportation to and from the church for these classes. Volunteers served lunch time snacks during the daily classes.

When the time came that the Sisters of St. Basil could no longer provide their services, volunteers stepped up to take on the task of teaching.. Classes were held in curtained off areas in the basment of the church on First St., as well in the church itself, and the choir loft.

When we moved to our current location, classrooms were provided adjacent to our new gymnasium. With the many children, even this space was soon outgrown, and a separate building, the St. George cultral center was built. This provided the necessary space to fill our needs.

Since our move to Robinson Ave., the following individuals have served as catechetical coordinators: Danny Hornyak, Myron Papp, Joanne Angeletti, Don Dalessandro, Karen Miller, and the current director, James Senderak.

We have 23 children enrolled from Preschool to Highschool. We are blessed to have a dedicated group of catechists who offer many years of experience. Our most seasoned teacher is Barb Yeager, who has been with the program for over 20 years. Nancy Dragovich, Anne Dennison, and Patrick Keegan complete our staff.

May St. Nicholas parish continually pass on to her children, the richness and fullness of life in our Lord, Jesus Christ, that we know have come to know and love as Byzantine Catholics.
