Monday School

Adult Religious Education

Learning about the Orthodox Faith is a lifelong endeavor. Monday School (for the grownups) is designed to be an introduction to our common life in Christ through study of the Holy Scriptures and the Tradition of the Church. The themes change with each season, and each separate class is intended to stand alone. The class is open to anyone who is interested in learning and is informal in tone: participants are welcome to come and go as they like and are encouraged to participate actively. Attendance at these classes is highly encouraged for inquirers and those preparing for their reception into the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Greek School PTA

 

Remember, we are all working together for “our most precious gifts”...our children!

The Greek School is devoted to developing literacy and fluency in the Greek Language and to cultivating knowledge and understanding of Greek cultures and traditions. The PTA’s role is to enhance and support the Greek School’s mission through volunteering and fundraising events. The present PTA organization was established at our General Assembly meeting on May 17, 2019.

We would like to thank all of the Greek School families for their contributions to this past year’s events. We are now in the process of working out next year’s program in the hope of surpassing last year’s success. We are truly fortunate to have support from our wonderful Greek School Director, Irene Pantelaros, along with our most-loved and respected Fr. Nick, our terrific Greek School Teachers, and the Holy Trinity Church Board and Community.

To enable the Greek School to begin operations on solid footing, we are collecting $30.00 per family which are the PTA dues for the 2018/2019 school year. We only have two General Assembly meetings the entire year. One for elections and the other one is general meeting. In order to have the right to vote, you must be an active PTA member. Kindly fill out the information and membership form below and have a cash payment or check made payable to “Holy Trinity Greek School PTA”, as you register your child/children to Greek School this year. It will make the start to the school year run smoothly.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to a productive and rewarding year on behalf of all the Greek School children.
