Church School

To Parents with school age children 5 years of age through high school:

Your children’s spiritual education is extremely important. Sunday School is an extension of what you teach your children at home about God, the Mother of God, the saints, and the spiritual life. Let us work together to give our children the spiritual tools and spiritual foundation they will need not only now in their young lives, but as they get older. May they always keep God in their hearts and in their lives. School dates: 2/10, 2/24, 3/10/ 3/24, 4/7, 4/14, 5/5, 5/7. Classes Start at 9AM

Fresco Fund Donations
As we continue to beautify our church with frescoes, your donations are very much appreciated.
