St. Spyridon is fortunate to have a very strong and thriving Sunday School program. The Sunday School program teaches our children and youth the Orthodox faith through teachings of the Bible as well as materials obtained from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese. Curriculum runs from September to June each year. Classes begin immediately after Holy Communion and are 45 - 60 minutes in length.
Greek Language School
Greek School is targeted for our community's youth. However, we welcome everyone in the community to help strengthen this program. In addition to Greek language instruction, the program includes Greek music and dance, cooking, and arts and crafts. The program runs from September to June on Sundays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and is free of charge for parish members.
