There are many opportunities to deepen your knowledge about the Orthodox Christian faith and spiritual life every week for all ages.
This is a year-long class for our catechumens who are preparing to be received into the Orthodox Church. In 2024, we are meeting on Tuesdays at 5:30pm. The class is also open to all parishioners and serious inquirers into Orthodoxy. Please contact Fr. Ninos to arrange a visit to attend a class meeting.
The Teachings of the Church
A small discussion group for learning and exploring the teachings of the Orthodox Church together. Our topic in 2024 is The Divine Liturgy. We meet at 5pm on Wednesdays for prayer followed by a fasting-friendly (vegetarian/vegan) potluck meal and the teaching and discussion group at 6pm.
A catechism program designed for our parishioners, both individuals and families with children which includes a monthly family night gathering with lesson and activities and teaching topics and resources on our website designed to help individuals and families to better understand and practice the Orthodox Faith in order to enrich your daily lives and Sunday worship experience.

Know Your Faith
At the end of the Divine Liturgy, Fr. Ninos offers a teaching on a spiritual or practical matter of our Orthodox Faith, either at the end of the service or during the fellowship hour. It’s a way for everyone in attendance to learn more about the Orthodox faith and hear answers on common questions. There is also an opportunity to ask Fr. Ninos any questions on spiritual, theological or practical faith matters.
