Will our children choose to live as Orthodox Christians?
This is the most pressing question facing the Church today.
Over the years, the conventional path followed to form young people in the Orthodox Faith has included a Sunday school program. Today, it is a given that every parish needs a Sunday school in order to be considered successful. However, as more and more parishes face serious questions about their future, one must ask whether or not Sunday school has served our children well.
The answer to this question goes well beyond money. It should be noted that at no time in history has the Church in America devoted more resources to the education of its youth.
