Sunday School meets during the school year during the 10am service. The students and teachers join the Eucharist at the Peace and receive Communion with the rest of the congregation. All teachers complete the Diocesan mandated training regarding child abuse, and we try to maintain a policy of two teachers in each classroom. Class grouping changes from year to year based on the ages of the students who are enrolled. This year’s teaching assignments are as follows:
Pre-K/Kindergarten: Julia Bartlett
1st-3rd Grades: Amy Rothleder & Carolanne Darrigo
4th-6th Grades: Donna Irizarry & Julie Hendricks-Atkins
7th Grade and up: Gina Reichmann & Eliza Gilner
Confirmation Class: Fr. Bartolomeo
The classes are currently using the David C. Cook curriculum. However, religious instruction goes beyond that. The classes learn Christian fellowship and service through such activities as: preparing and serving at the parish breakfasts, baking cookies and serving as wait staff for the St. Nicholas bazaar, collecting donations for the United Thank Offering and the Samaritan’s Purse, and both preparing and serving dinner at the Huntington Interfaith Homeless Initiative.
This year, the students made Easter baskets for those in need.
