“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he won’t depart from it.”
Proverbs: 22.6

Sunday school Timing: 9.00 am to 10.15 am

Orthodox Syrian Sunday School Association of the East Northeast American Diocese

Note: These Additional Curriculum Requirements are made so that our Sunday School Children will have some basic knowledge of our Worship Hymns and Prayers and the Syriac/Greek Words and Phrases used in our Services, which expectedly would enable them to participate better in Services. An attempt has been made for each year to build on the previous year’s knowledge.
