The mission of the St. Nicholas Religious Education program is to help build up the Church, the Body of Christ, by nurturing every person in the life of personal communion with the Holy Trinity (theosis), and thus, through this ministry, to bear joyful witness to God’s loving and redeeming work in the world.
Orthodox Christian Education aims at the communication of the content of Christian truth in the context of concrete Christian living: believing, praying, worshiping, learning, applying, growing, sharing, serving and witnessing.
The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is pleased to offer three websites for children to explore their faith while having fun - Children's Bible Reader Online, Saints Alive!, and Iconoguess - a feature of Iconograms.

Welcome back to Religious Education. We just want to remind you of some guidelines to make everyone's experience pleasant.
Class begins after Communion. Students must attend church before they proceed to class. Mt students should line up on the left side of the Church after Communion and wait for Father to hand out Andidoron. They will then proceed to their rel. ed. classes. There will be students from the High School class to escort the children to their classes.
Classes end at 12 noon. Please wait in the Fellowship Hall until then to pick up your children. Waiting in the classroom halls is very distracting to both the students and the teachers.
We ask that all parents wait in the Fellowship Hall until after class is dismissed. Parents of Genesis and Kindergarten students should come to pick up their children at their classes at 12 noon. If you must take your child out early please send a note with your child stating the time they need to leave class.
We are looking forward to a wonderful school year. We appreciate your faithfulness in regards to bringing your children every Sunday. If you attend another Church on Sunday please bring a note from the Priest, teacher or the Church bulletin so that your child doesn't lose credit for that day of class.
Thank you for your support. Our program can only be successful if we all work together.
