Welcome to the 2019-2020 Church School year! Our theme this year is I Am the Way and the Truth and the Life (John14:6).
The St. Anthony Church School program is a vibrant and vital ministry provided for our youth. Each Sunday, faithful and dedicated teachers prepare well-planned, and age-appropriate, lessons for their students based on selected themes. Students who attend classes regularly benefit from a continuum of lessons that delve deeply into their theme and explicitly teach them about our ancient, yet living Holy Orthodox Faith.
The Church School year will run from September 15 through May 31. Classes begin directly after Holy Communion (around 11:00 am) and end at noon for all grade levels. Click on the link below to view our Church School Calendar for all of this year’s class sessions and events.
Parents must register their children for Church School by completing and submitting a Registration Form for each child. We also ask for a $20 tax-deductible donation, per student, to go toward Church School’s needs. If you missed Registration Sunday, please see your child’s teacher for a copy of the Registration Form and Donation Envelope, or obtain one from the foyer of the Parish Center. You can also click on the link below to view and print out a Registration Form. ***Visitors are welcome to join our classes without needing to submit a Registration Form.
To minimize disruptions during our short time together, we ask that students use the restroom, drink water, and put away all distractions before class begins and remain for the duration of the lesson.
Parental support is key in making religious education a priority for our students. Making the Orthodox church-going experience a positive one sets the tone for the children and can ignite in them a personal desire to learn and grow in the Orthodox Faith.
A St. Anthony Church School student will:
- Attend the Divine Liturgy weekly
- Attend Church School weekly
- Be dedicated
- Be on time
- Be focused and engaged during class
- Participate during lessons
We encourage all children, 4 years old (as of September 1, 2019) through Grade 12, to participate weekly in Church School!
