The mission of the Sunday school is to train and educate the young children of the parish in the fundamentals of the Holy Orthodox Faith. The church school program starts at Pre-K and continues through high school. It is taught by volunteers from the parish using an approved Orthodox curriculum.
The church school year starts the first Sunday of September and continues through May. Classes meet directly following the children’s Holy Communion in the Lower Level Church School classrooms. The church school teachers and staff often participate in educational workshops and seminars sponsored by our Antiochian Archdiocese. Once a month a sermon addressed to the children is presented by one of the priests. For more information contact Directors Samia Zolnerowich and Jennifer Buchko at firstname.lastname@example.org.
