Early Catholic Family Life (ECFL) has met for two sessions already and we have had a ball! The first session was about God’s Creation and the kids participated in activities such as drawing a mural of God’s creations and playing with live minnows! In our second lesson we focused on Church. The activities included playing Mass – complete with child-sized vestments and hosts made of bread and a kid-sized tour of the church.
While the children were enjoying snack, stories and playdough, the parents joined together in another room for fellowship and sharing. All were invited to talk about how they were introduced to their faith. Parents also compared notes on what their families were doing to foster a faith-filled home. Most importantly, though, they were given an opportunity to meet one another and form a community bond that will continue for a lifetime!
