Lifelong Faith Formation Association

The Lifelong Faith Formation Association (LFFA) is a network of parish leaders in catechetical ministry in the Diocese of Portland.  We used to be known as the Cumberland and York County Coordinator's Association (CYCCA).  But with the advances in technology, in June of 2010 we decided to open our association to the whole Diocese of Portland rather than just Cumberland and York counties. So, we are happy to be sporting a new name. The LFFA officers are listed on this page. Please click on one of our names to get our contact information and contact us with any questions you may have about our association. 

We are a networking group who support each other in catechetical ministry of all ages - children through adults. 

From September to June, we have regular monthly meetings and plan an annual retreat in May. Our monthly meetings usually feature a guest speaker who will explore a topic in catechetical ministry relevant to our times.  To see a schedule, please click schedule.

We hope you can join us!
