Cathedral Sunday Church School
Religious Education Programs for Cathedral Youth
Bedtime Bible Stories for Pre-K and K
With schools in our area preparing to begin their new school year, our Cathedral will have a special blessing service for our children as they return to school on Sunday, August 8. Students, teachers and administrators are asked to be in church on this day so that a special prayer may be offered for them as they start the new school year. Following the blessing, each student and teacher in attendance will be given an icon to keep with them during the school year.
With the need greater than ever, we are collecting school supplies for children who are currently in NISEC of NWI, foster and shelter care. All backpacks and supplies will be distributed throughout Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties. See Eva Kostides for details. Please help by purchasing off of our Amazon wish list (type this link into your web browser): https://a.co/2WaZVIo.

Deadline for supplies is TODAY.
Vacation Bible School
Thank you to everyone who contributed to make VBS a success this year! Over 50 of our youth came together to grow in faith and love for Christ, learning about the great saints of the Old Testament who trusted God in the most difficult of circumstances. Thank you to all of our families who sacrificed time out of their summer schedules to be present. Thank you also to our teachers, assistant teachers, support staff, and everyone who volunteered their time and energy to put a great program together for our kids. A special thank you to Pres. Kathy Pappas, Pres. Danielle Burikas, Susan Tsagris, and Aleka Dovellos for serving on our planning committee and laying the foundation for a successful event. We hope everyone has a great summer, and we are looking forward to doing this again next year!
