Sunday School

Sunday School Reopening

Sunday School will reopen on Saturday September 11 for the new academic year.

Classes will be conducted on Saturdays and Sundays depending on convenience and availability of students, teachers and devices. Please keep our Sunday School training programs and activities in our daily prayer. Sunday School education shall be viewed and understood as the Ecclesial academic program with excellence  involving biblical, sacramental, theological, environmental, ecological, cultural, religious art/music/ and literary  exposure to students which will equip them for their bright future. We have all grades open and working with excellent and dedicated teachers. If we look at the life of the faithful, it would be easy to detect the role of Sunday School training behind their success. Every Sunday School class shall be the coming together of Christ and kids where they meet each other, get trained by the Lord, illuminated by the Divine wisdom through the Holy Spirit and enjoy lifelong friendship among themselves. Let us be there for all necessary and possible support.

Sunday School’s New Principal

Welcome Santhosh Varughese, Sunday School’s new Principal

As Elizabeth Vaidhyan completes her three year tenure and steps down as Principal, Santhosh Varughese assumes the office to be the new Principal. We would like to acknowledge the brilliance, efficiency, coordination, innovation, energy, zeal, enthusiasm and dedication revealed in the service rendered by Elizabeth Vaidhyan. We would also like to appreciate and acknowledge the progress and growth our parish Sunday School has achieved locally and within the Diocese of North East America under her leadership. We sincerely thank God for all the blessings we have received through her ministry.
We do welcome Santhosh Varughese and wish the best to his service as the new Principal. You can reach out to him over phone on (416) 258 2062 for any enquiry, assistance or administrative need.
We wish the best also to all teachers, students, volunteers, technical support team and all parents and keep everyone in prayer.

OVBS 2021

This year’s OVBS learning sessions have been completed.

OVBS for us is the parish Olympics, which is not because of its competition aspect but because of its overall positivity which can last till the next event. Actually it is a learning program like Sunday School which could have fallen into boredom and monotony, however the way it has been programmed keeps it from going exhaustive. It is just another academic exercise sweetened with music and games and wrapped in glitterati. Everybody enjoys it as it brings neither burden nor worry, only pure joy. We can make an OVBS everyday in our life if we don’t complicate things.
 
We do sincerely acknowledge the efforts and hard work of the dedicated team of our teachers, wonderful participation of our children, tremendous support from parents, excellent assistance from the technical team and all possible support from the Management Committee. Special mention is due to Mridula Liju Thakadiyel for her brilliant coordination of OVBS 2021.
