     At ECFL, we believe that a child’s first and most important teachers are PARENTS!  Our mission is to connect parents with other families and give them the tools to help them raise their children in the Faith.

    •  Parents are given play time with their child followed by a facilitator led parent discussion while the children have a guided activity time.  This is a wonderful way to give Catholic parents opportunities to discuss faith topics and learn the how’s and why’s of passing our Catholic faith on to their children.  
    • Activities and shared ideas provide suggestions for establishing a Catholic culture in the home beginning in the early years of childhood.
