Cathedral Sunday Church School

Religious Education Programs for Cathedral Youth

SUNDAY SCHOOL REGISTRATION NOW OPEN: Sunday School this year will be for grades Pre-K through 5th. You can register your Pre-K through 5th kiddos online through our Square Site: There is a $20 per student that you can pay directly through the website. Make sure you fill out the information fields for each child registered.

SUNDAY SCHOOL ASSISTANT TEACHERS NEEDED: Our Sunday School is looking for volunteers to be assistant teachers in the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classes. If you are interested in serving in this capacity, please contact Marianne Orfanos at or 219-712-4468.

BACKPACK/BACK-TO-SCHOOL BLESSING: With area schools starting earlier each year, our Cathedral will have a special blessing service for our children on Sunday, August 14th as they return to school. Students, teachers and administrators should be in church on this day so that a special prayer may be offered for them as they start the new school year. Following the blessing, all those participating in the prayer will be presented an icon to keep with them for the school year. We are also collecting school supplies for those less fortunate. Items can be brought to church on Sundays or to the church office during the week. To purchase from our convenient wish list, see the enclosed flyer. To make a monetary donation, click this link:

SUNDAY SCHOOL UPDATE: This year, our Sunday School will be adopting a new format. Grades Pre-K through 5th will remain the same, with weekly classes taking place following Holy Communion in the Divine Liturgy. Grades 6-12 will be transitioning to a retreat model, with the parish hosting quarterly catechetical retreats for those age groups. We are looking for dedicated and talented people to volunteer their time at these retreats for the raising up of faithful Orthodox Christians. Anyone interested in helping should contact Fr. Dimitri at If any family would like to sponsor a retreat, both financially and by volunteering their time, they should also contact Fr. Dimitri or Fr. Ted to discuss further.

SUNDAY DISCUSSION GROUP FOR ADULTS: Starting on Sunday, February 20th, we will be holding a discussion group for adults on Sundays after worship services. We will have a table in the coffee fellowship hour reserved for anyone who wants to participate. Topics of discussion will be: the daily readings, short stories from the lives of the saints, prayer, and the Divine Liturgy.
