For those who are baptized into Christ in their earliest years, formation in our Orthodox Faith is a life-long process. It takes place by participation in the liturgical life of the Church and by faithful observance of Orthodox teachings and traditions in our homes and in our daily lives. The services offered on a regular basis at our Cathedral on Sundays — Orthros (Dawn Prayers), and the Divine Liturgy — are the voice of the faithful offering prayers and praise to God, but also work to help reveal to us the depths of God’s truth, to instruct us in faith. It is a tradition that has been centuries in the making and to which some of the most gifted and inspired saints have contributed.

Despite this, in many places in the United States, it has become common for our communities to offer religious education as a separate and distinct aspect of our Sunday gatherings. Our Cathedral is no exception to this, and it is served by many volunteers who direct, teach, and assist with age-appropriate lessons.

This Religious Education or “Church School” has as its aim to reinforce the teachings of the Church, by weaving into the experience of worship lessons in Scripture, concepts of our Faith, and understanding of the Church’s liturgical year. Additionally, our youth have opportunities to put words into action, learning that faith entails commitment, responsibility, and discipline. All of these aspects of religious education feed back into family life.




Pre-School, 3-year olds through High School seniors.  Classes commence in September and conclude in May or June.  Children, their families, and their instructors gather in the Cathedral for the Divine Liturgy by 10:00 AM. Children sit in pews designated for the Sunday School, by grade. The time of classroom instruction for all grades begins after the Great Entrance, and concludes at the end of the Divine Liturgy.

Sunday School enrollment is now open for children from pre-Nursery through 12th Grade. Please click on the following link to enroll your children:

No Cost. All may register their children into the program.  For further information, contact Maria Durham, Sunday School Director:
