EfM 2019

The theme for this year is Living Faithfully in your World.

In 2019 we will be studying Volume A, the first of the four year cycle of the EfM program.

This is the second time that Volume A has been used since the revised EfM program was introduced and some adjustments and changes have been made in light of experience and feedback from participants.
