“The purpose of Orthodox Christian Education (catechesis) is to help build up the Church, the Body of Christ, by nurturing every person in the life of personal communion with the Holy Trinity (theosis), and thus, through this ministry, to bear joyful witness to God’s loving and redeeming work in the world.” (from our Archdiocese)
Throughout the traditional school year, students from preschool through college are invited to join our Sunday School classes, offered after Holy Communion in Mt. Tabor Hall. Our goal is not only to provide education about the teachings and sacraments of the Holy Church, but to support families in raising their children in an Orthodox home, because we recognize that Orthodoxy is a lived faith and cannot be fully transmitted in a 45-minute class on Sundays.
Transfiguration’s Sunday School operates on a parish-wide curriculum. Every class, from preschool to college level, teaches on the same topic each week, in hopes that families will be able to come together after class, on the car ride home, and at the dinner table all week, and discuss the week’s lesson and how we can see it at work in our daily lives.
The school year opens with our Annual Back-To-School Roller-Skating Party, and several times a year the students will learn hymns together and participate in processions in the church.
Schedule: classes are held after Holy Communion in Mt. Tabor Hall, following the local public school calendars.
