- Lead our children to a personal commitment to follow Jesus.
- Learn to worship our Lord through singing and praying and help them remain in that commitment.
The classes range from Pre-primary classes to the 12th class. As in secular schools, class ten concludes the secondary level and a certificate is awarded 'Sunday School final Certificate (SSFC)' to the successful candidates. Sunday School of St. Thomas Indian Orthodox Cathedral seeks to nurture the young and inquisitive minds of its students by teaching them the lessons and parables of the Bible. Furthermore, they are enriched with an understanding of the Orthodox doctrines and morals as exhibited in the lives of the Church's many blessed Saints. We believe that by educating the students about the word of God, they will grow in a path of righteousness and be prepared to follow in God's will.
Higher Secondary course is for another two years. We follow a curriculum, jointly prepared and published by the Oriental Orthodox Churches which is revised from time to time. The vacation Bible School conducted during the mid summer holidays (OVBS) is a very vibrant wing of the O.S.S.A.E. we publish separate text books, devotional materials, song books and cassettes for the OVBS every year.
