During the year the entire Church School participates in several enjoyable activities outside the classroom. The Spaghetti Supper and Haunted Hike is a fun welcome back evening for the entire parish. The Christmas Pageant is a gift to the congregation of a special service from the Church School. The Holy Saturday Service and Easter Egg Hunt is a way for our children to become more involved in a Holy Day Service. The children also participate in the Super Bowl Bake Sale and Mardi Gras Party. The Flowering of the Cross on Mother’s Day helps us all celebrate the renewal of life through our Lord Jesus Christ.
