“Of all holy works, the education of children is the most holy.”
~Saint Theophan the Recluse
On December 17, we held our Christmas Pageant. January is FDF. In the latter part of January, we will be rearranging our materials in the classrooms we are now sharing with Millennium School. In February, we will hold classes as scheduled, culminating in our participation, on February 25, in the Sunday of Orthodoxy procession at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy. 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 precious 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 ways for improving our program. We welcome your input and your suggestions and, of course, we thank you for the privilege of teaching your children.
