Curriculum for the Sunday School of Syriac Orthodox Church
- "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
The journey to creating an innovative curriculum for the Syriac Orthodox Church has been a long one. After decades of efforts from many people, Parables & Books has been working diligently for the past year on a new unified Sunday school curriculum to be implemented by both the archdioceses of the East Coast and West Coast of America. This monumental endeavor marks the first time a curriculum of such magnitude will be produced.
In its final form, eight distinct grade levels will be available complete with student workbooks, teachers' manuals and various supplemental materials including posters, additional activity/coloring pages and more.
For additional information on how to use these materials, kindly visit the links listed below:
- Most honorable members of the team,
This well consolidated Sunday School curriculum will be highly helpful in our parishes where most of the children ( even many adults) do not learn, follow or understand the language in vernacular mother tongue due to changing circumstances everywhere.
It is also necessary to have the Holy Eucharist celebrated in English at least once in a month for the benefit of the children and those who do not understand the liturgy in vernacular form.
