The children will attend 7 consecutive lessons during Sunday School led by different members of the clergy, staff and lay ministers. The program will conclude with a special recognition ceremony and reception. Lessons will include interactive tutorials on the Eucharistic vessels, the Church calendar, the clerical vestments, a tour of the Sanctuary, an organ demonstration, a manna making session and an instructed Eucharist lead by the Reverend Jon Stran.
