Greek Orthodox Cathedral of New England
Cathedral Sunday School
Welcome! This year, Sunday School begins on September 25, 2016. The goal of the Sunday School is to show our children how to lead Christian lives. The Sunday School teacher supplements and reinforces the work of the priest and the parents in the Christian formation of the children of our Cathedral. Our first concern is that the child learns about our Savior, Jesus Christ. Using His teachings as our foundation, we bring the child to know and practice the Orthodox Christian faith. Each teacher in the Sunday School is not only a source of religious information to the child, but also one of the child’s primary examples of Christian behavior.
All students and teachers are expected to be in Church no later than 10:00 am at the start of the Divine Liturgy. Students, their parents, and teachers are invited to sit together up front in the center left section of pews marked for the Sunday School. Fr. Demetri will address the Sunday School students just before Holy Communion and explain some of the most essential aspects of our Orthodox Christian faith. All classes will leave to go to class after Holy Communion. Classes typically last around 45 minutes.
Our main mission in the Sunday School is to help the children to know their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are all called to live our life in Christ with the understanding that Orthodoxy (right belief) goes hand in hand with Orthopraxis (right action). We offer a variety of community projects in which our students and their families can participate .
