·         Sunday School - We encourage all children to participate in our Church School.  We ask our parents to talk about the benefits of participating in Sunday activities.  Let us teach our children to learn about their Orthodox faith and their Ukrainian heritage!  Please contact Father Gregory for more information.
        
·         Every Orthodox Child, having attained the age of 7, should be prepared for the Holy Mystery of Confession.  We ask that if you have children, grandchildren or Godchildren who are 7 years or older and have not yet approached for the Holy Mystery of Confession, please contact Father Pawlo.

·         Confession:  Half an hour before the liturgy or by appointment.  Those who do not know or have any doubts regarding the Orthodox Faith, cannot come to Holy Confession without talking to Father first.  Children under the age of seven are allowed to come to Holy Communion without coming to Confession.

·         Baptisms:  Parents should arrange a personal meeting with Father Pawlo to make arrangements.  At least one parent should be an active Orthodox Christian when setting the date for baptism and at least one godparent should be a practicing Orthodox Christian.  Baptizing a child in the Orthodox Church presupposes that the child will be raised as an Orthodox Christian.

·         Weddings:  Couples should arrange a personal meeting with the priest to make arrangements.  At least one party should be an active Orthodox Christian when setting the date for marriage.
