Lifelong Faith Formation Association

Download the 2019-2020 brochure

The Lifelong Faith Formation Association (LFFA) is a network of parish leaders in catechetical ministry in the Diocese of Portland. The LFFA became a diocesan wide organization in June 2010 after the Cumberland and York County Coordinator's Association (CYCCA) took advantage of technology advances to open membership to the whole state. 

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 helps us explore a topic in catechetical ministry relevant to our times. 
To see a current schedule, please click schedule.
We hope you will join us! Please click  'To Join' to complete the online form to become part of the association. The $35 annual dues help with the costs of speakers, the book for the annual group-read, and cards/gifts for members who experience a death or serious illness.

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.
