The purpose of Sunday School is to cultivate within our children the Orthodox Christian way of life.  Throughout the year, our Sunday School is teaching our children not only the facts of our Orthodox Faith, but also the practical side of living it.  Each month our children and teachers are involved in various service projects to assist those less fortunate thus stressing the teachings of our Lord to “love one another.”

Registration fee for every child, which includes texts, materials and retreats, is $25 per child. Children ages 3 years old as of August 1st through senior year high school may be registered.
