Eastern Catholic Educators Meet

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

The Spring meeting of Eastern Catholic educators (ECED) met in Pittsburgh. Gathered at the Byzantine Catholic Seminary of SS Cyril and Methodius, they spent two days studying several projects to revise student texts and teacher's manuals for seventh and eighth grades; evaluate the need to reprint some material;  consider promotions through advertising and catalog “specials” sales; update the web site; and develop new product.

Additionally they viewed preliminary printouts of posters and other material for “Catechetical Sunday” programs throughout the country, and elaborated on the progress of plans to present a series of three presentations of informative discussions for catechists and other interested persons. Known as “Encounter 2012” the  three-day sessions will be held in East and West Coast locations as well as the Midwest. As details are developed, information will be made available.

ECED is now in its fortieth year of providing catechetical material for Eastern Catholic schools and parish study groups for all ages.

It is, as God With Us Publications, the publishing arm of ECA, the Eastern Catholic Bishops of the United States of America, who form Region XV of the USCCB (United States Council of Catholic Bishops).

The varied Eastern Catholic Churches involved serve and  represent the ever-increasing numbers of jurisdictions and traditions that have the obligation to provide for the spiritual growth of the faithful who now live in the United States.
