Sunday School

Sunday School offers an opportunity for the youth of our church (Pre-K to 12th grade) to learn about the Orthodox faith including readings from the Old & New Testaments, significance of religious holidays and feast days, and understanding the lives of the saints. 

Meetings are held September - May following Holy Communion. 

 

We would like to welcome everyone to a new year of Religious Education.  Teaching children the beauty of the Orthodox Faith is very fulfilling. Our Teachers have  over 200 years of combined experience in bringing the word of God to our youth.  Parents are the first teachers of the Faith as living examples of planting the seeds of God's word, and our teachers expand the experience.  This year we are embarking with a renewed emphasis on incorporating the Orthodox Faith into every aspect of our lives.  To begin, Father Peter's sermon will coordinate with the lessons which are being taught in the classroom.  Information will be shared with parents so that they have the opportunity to discuss and reinforce what the students have learned in class.  It will open up avenues of conversation for the family.  Regular attendance is necessary to enhance continuity from the pulpit to the pupil. 

As in the past, attendance pins will be awarded for attending 2/3 of the Sunday classes.  Outreach projects will be arranged so that students see their Faith in action.

Our format will continue with students staying with their parents for the Divine Liturgy; partaking of Holy Communion; and then exiting the church proper to go to their classrooms.

If you are interested in assisting with Sunday School, please contact Catherine Daglas or Peter Vichos. We look forward to a fruitful year of growing in the vineyard of the Lord.
