Sunday School is a very important aspect of the life of the Church. The understanding of our faith through religious classes brings our children closer to the understanding of God. Sunday School meets every Sunday, September-May after the reception of Holy Communion. Students age 3 (by September 1st) through 10th grade are encouraged to register for and attend Sunday School classes. Mr. Peter Bakas is the advisor assisted by Mrs. Stafany Bakas. The curriculum is Orthodox Bible based, Christ centered, age appropriate, creative and fun.

Music planned for every sunday: K-4 12:10-12:30, 5-10 11:30-11:50


Please fill out and return the Sunday School Registration form found in front of the Church office. Registration fee is $20.00 per child. Please be reminded that your 2006 stewardship pledge MUST be paid in full prior to registration.
