Sunday School

The primary objective of our Sunday School is to educate the children about God and our rich Orthodox tradition. Sunday school provides a training ground for children to be more productive in their church and gives them leadership qualities. It also gives them an opportunity to develop their skills and talents for the Lord. The children are able to communicate and share their needs with others.


Every Sunday after Holy Qurbana, Sunday school starts with a general session and prayer after which they attend their individual classes to learn from the textbooks and materials prescribed by the Sunday School Association of Northeast American Diocese. Each class has a primary teacher and a substitute teacher to cover their class in-case of the primary teacher’s absence. Many of our Sunday school students have scored well on their centralized exams. Our Sunday school children are blessed with many talents. They actively participate in the Area/Diocesan level competitions and talent show. Every year students from our Church win several prizes in the competition. Our Sunday school students also take part in the Orthodox Vacation Bible School (OVBS) conducted for the churches in the Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island areas. Many of our former students are now serving as Sunday school teachers.
