Religious Education

Our youth from Preschool to High School meet most Sundays during the school year to be instructed in the Orthodox faith by wonderful and enthusiastic teachers.  The curriculum emphasizes the importance of living our Orthodox Christian faith daily and our program encourages participation in all aspects of Church life.  Our curriculum is designed to layer upon itself so the understanding of the teachings and traditions are always being deepened.  Our greatest hope is that the children grow to love our Church and begin a lifelong relationship with our Lord.

If you haven't registered your child and would like to do so, or if you need more information, please contact Fr. Tom Felactu at 650-591-4447 or click on the "on-line registration form" link below. 

For the 2017-2018 Religious Education year, our program began on Sunday, September 10  with classroom instruction immediately following Holy Communion.  Please register your children in advance by visiting the link below.

Sunday School registration is now open.
Please register your child at the church's ChurchYard website.
Church music has been posted for those Sunday School grades and children that are participating in this year's Christmas program. Thank you Eva Canellos for all of your hard work in putting this together.
