Dormition of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church

Winchester, Virginia


School Sunday


"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."

 (Proverbs 22:6)


The general education our children receive today is simply not enough.  In a world that becomes ever more complicated and morally complex, our children run the risk of lacking the spiritual and moral development to navigate their way through these treacherous waters.  Our children must balance the advancement of their intellect through traditional schooling with the development of their moral character through education in the Orthodox Faith.  It is here, in our Sunday School program, that we hope our children will not only make new friends and have fun, but that they will fundamentally build a moral compass that will guide them in later years to what is right and what is true.


The 2016-2017 Sunday School year began on Sunday, September 11. Classes begin at 10:00am in the Social Hall. All children ages 5-18 are encouraged to attend.


Our Sunday School staff is comprised of parishioners who are experienced in teaching children. These parishioners dedicate their time determined to providing their students with a lifetime understanding of the Orthodox Faith and its teachings and values.
