Registration open for Early Catholic Family Life program; event to be held Sept. 13

The archdiocese’s Office of Marriage, Family and Life is hosting a training program that aims to help parents pass on the Catholic faith.

The Early Catholic Family Life program will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13, at the archdiocese’s chancery offices — Monsignor Hayden Center, 328 W. Kellogg Blvd., St Paul.

The fee is $100, which includes training of two individuals. An additional two people may be added with no additional fee. The fee also includes leader guides and workbooks. Contact your parish about assistance to cover the fee.

“ECFL has given us tools to nurture the Catholic faith in our young children,” said program facilitator Carol Longsdorf, a parishioner of St. Peter in Forest Lake. “For as parents, we cannot give to our children what we do not have ourselves.”

For more information and to register, call the Office of Marriage, Family and Life at (651) 291-4489 or visit the event’s page.
