"Then little children were brought to Him that he might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.'" (Matthew 19:13-14)
Parents as parents, we strive to nurture our children in all facets of their development. We want them to grow intellectually, academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. As Christians, the most sacred task set before us, however, is to help our children grow spiritually. We are here to help parents teach our children how to live their Orthodox faith. Together, we can give them the foundation to live Christian lives and to go out into the world and share their faith.
The mission of our Sunday School program is to partner with the parents in the spiritual development of our youth so that together we can instill the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in our students’ hearts, minds, and souls.
Sunday School also gives the opportunity for parents to attend church for their own benefit while the kids are engaged in various activities in a classroom format.
Parents are encouraged to bring their children to church. The children first gather in the front row and line up for Holy Communion as a group before heading upstairs for the activities and the lesson. At the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy, parents can collect their children at the front of our church.
At the end of the year, the children put on an on-stage presentation and also attend various excursions.
We cater for infants, primary and high school.
