“Of all holy works, the education of children is the most holy.”
~Saint Theophan the Recluse
We look forward to the new Sunday School year for, begins on September 10th. We encourage the parents and grandparents that bring their children to Sunday School to set a new goal this year: let’s see how many children can attain perfect attendance! And, another goal, to be in class by 10:30 a.m., when Sunday School begins.
Sunday School will continue on September 17, but not during the Festival, on September 24. On October 22, we will distribute Unicef Halloween boxes, which will be collected the following Sunday, October 29. Then, on December 17, we will hold our Christmas Pageant. Moving on to March, we will celebrate the great feast of the Annunciation, which is also the Feast Day of our Cathedral Parish. Godparent’s Sunday, which normally takes place the Sunday before Palm Sunday, will, instead, take place on Sunday, March 18, because the Annunciation falls on the Sunday prior to Palm Sunday. Then, of course, will hold TGI Pascha on Holy and Great Friday, April 6. We will not hold classes on Pascha, April 8, and we will end the school year on Sunday, June 3.
When you count the Sundays, you see that there are few Sundays for Sunday School. And, at one hour per Sunday, that’s just a handful of Sundays for education about our Faith. Of course, we are always looking for more and more teachers. We are optimistic that, this year, we will have all the teachers needed for our program, with one or two to spare!
