St. Haralambos Sunday School
Proverbs 22:6: “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.”
St. Haralambos implements an organized, complete and comprehensive religious education program, continually endeavoring to provide growth in faith to all our youth.
We are truly blessed to have a great group of energetic, knowledgeable and devoted teachers. They have embraced with dedication the mission of developing the spiritual growth of our children by teaching them the Word of God and our beautiful Orthodox faith.
In addition to weekly lessons, the students are actively involved in other activities that contribute to their knowledge of our faith including retreats, demonstrations in preparing Prosphoro and Koliva, to name a few.
Through our continuous Outreach Program, Martha’s Cupboard, our youth comprehend the value of helping those less fortunate. Saint Martha of Bethany, sister of Mary and Jesus’ friend, Lazarus, and her siblings were devoted to Jesus and He was a frequent visitor to their home. Martha was known for her hospitality to our Lord when He visited so it seemed appropriate to name our Cupboard in her honor. The purpose and goal of our Cupboard is to continue this hospitality toward those less fortunate by collecting and supplying food items to them throughout the year with special focus on the Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter Holidays.
Saint Nicholas Gift Project
In honor of the spirit and December 6th Feast Day of Saint Nicholas, who was known for helping and giving to the poor, we offer our “Saint Nicholas Gift Project.” The students bring gifts to church, which are then distributed to less fortunate children of their age and gender in the Canton community at Christmas.
Hebrews 13:16: Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Laura Anne Dieringer Memorial Scholarship
Each year we offer the Laura Anne Dieringer Memorial Scholarship to all graduating seniors who have successfully completed the program and meet all criteria. The scholarship is awarded to all senior graduates at our annual Recognition Ceremony. This year’s ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, May 17, 2020.
We encourage parents to bring children to Sunday School regularly so that they may receive the full benefit of the religious education being provided to them. Thank you for your continued support and God Bless!
