On the occasion of the beginning of the new ecclesiastical and educational year and with the blessings of Metropolitan Cleopas of Sweden and All Scandinavia, the Metropolis announced that the Sunday School will start on Sunday, October 17, 2021, at the premises of the St. George’s Cathedral in Stockholm (Birger Jarlsgatan 92, 11420 Stockholm).
Parents accompanying their children are kindly requested to sit in the front pews, so that right before Holy Communion, Metropolitan Cleopas and the Priest of the Cathedral may offer a short speech to the children. Then, the children will receive Holy Communion and proceed to their classrooms.
This year, seven young volunteers are in charge of teaching the children the Gospel message, the lives of the saints, the Tradition of the Church, and will offer them a number of activities, while at the end of the Divine Liturgy they will come again to church to receive the antidoron/bread.
On the first Sunday of classes, on October 17, the children will be divided into different groups, depending on their age, both in the church upper room and other adjacent rooms.
Remembering the command of the Lord: “Let the children come and do not prevent them from coming to me” (Matt. 19:14), let us not deprive the children of the spiritual supplies that will benefit them in their spiritual life and future endeavors.
