Church Services begin at 9:30 am starting Sunday, September 11. Sunday School students will first attend Church Services and after the Gospel reading (approximately 10:00 am) they will proceed to their classrooms for instruction. All participating members are asked to be in church to hear the Gospel reading prior to classroom instruction which begins at approximately 10:00 am.
Currently, we have over 130 students participating in our church school who are taught by our parishioners who volunteer their time and energy to help instill our children with a thorough knowledge of our Orthodox faith. Under the supervision of Rev. Dennis L. Nagi, Ph.D., Director, and Maria Sokaris as Associate Director, formal instruction begins with nursery school aged children and continues up through high school. Our teachers are dedicated in bringing a true, educational religious experience to our children. A variety of educational and religious activities, games, projects, and DVD’s according to themed lessons will be implemented for all students. From time to time, Fr. Pat or Fr. Dennis will visit classes and present topics related to our faith. When Sunday School is not in session, parents are encouraged on these “Family Worship Days” to sit in church with their children and participate fully in the Divine Liturgy as a family. All important information regarding class sessions, holiday breaks, curriculum, etc. can be found in the St. Sophia Sunday School Handbook 2016-2017.
