Sunday School

 Saint Paraskevi Sunday School   

     The Saint Paraskevi Sunday School provides religious education and an Eastern Orthodox Christian foundation for the youth of the community. Classes are available for children Kindergarten through High School, Grade 12. The education provided by the Sunday School enables children to learn and grow in the Orthodox faith, while practicing the faith in a dynamic environment where the student’s relationship with God can grow. Our program encourages life-long membership in the Church community, which is the body of Christ. Our teachers use various methods and resources to create a classroom full of enthusiasm for learning, while maintaining the suggested curriculum of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.

     Sunday School families are encouraged to arrive for the Divine Liturgy on Sunday promptly at 9:45 a.m.  Our Sunday School classes begin every week, after Holy Communion.  Class time is approximately 30 to 45 minutes.

     For more information regarding Sunday School, please contact the Sunday School Director at fioannou@optonline.net or call the Church Office at (631) 261-7272.

Mission Statement 

     The mission of the Saint Paraskevi Sunday School is to nurture, instruct and direct students growing in the Orthodox faith by fostering a closer relationship with God and one another, by following Christ in Christian living “the life in Christ”.  

     Education of faith is a life-long journey that starts in the family home and is enhanced, nurtured and fulfilled in the community of faith, the household of God, which is the Church. The goal of the Orthodox teaching  is for each person to become an icon, a living image of God, a person who lives in continual fellowship – communion – with God, reflecting a particular way – the Christ-like way – of knowing and living in the world.

Sunday School teachers and other volunteers are always needed.
