This is a very special year at Saint Paul’s! The First Divine Liturgy was held in June of 1978, and Church School began the following September. Thus, we are celebrating 40 years of Church School with the beginning of class in 2018. As usually, we have planned a full schedule for the year. The blessing of teachers and children will take place on September 16th, the first day of classes. Our children will participate in the Feastday Great Vespers on October 28th, as well as Regular Youth Choir practices in October and November in preparation for the Christmas Pageant in December. We will again showcase our curriculum in a “Gallery Walk” Open House during Coffee Hour in early 2019, the St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival will take place in March, the Great and Holy Friday Youth Retreat will take place in April, and Godparent-Godchild Sunday in May.   Please keep our Church School program: students, teachers, aides, and directors in your prayers.

Sunday Schedule

Ages 3-12th grade

10:00 Divine Liturgy

Families worship together. This is critical to true Christian Education. You are giving your children a great blessing by allowing them to learn to participate in the community of Faith in the Divine Liturgy.

10:15 “On-Time” ticket distribution ends (Some classes have a small “on-time” reward program)

Students will be ushered for Holy Communion after the Choir

Students will exit at South rear door of Church, (due to construction) then proceed to their classes.

12:00-12:15 Class dismissed.

(Parents are asked to wait until class has been dismissed before calling for children.) Occasionally a student needs to be released prior to dismissal. To avoid lesson disruption, he or she should come to class with a parent note indicating the time and reason for early release.
