The St. Mathew’s Mar Thoma Church Sunday School strives to bring to every child, the opportunity to build a strong and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. Operating under the guidelines of the Mar Thoma Church Sunday School within the Diocese of North America and Europe, the mission reflects the goals of the Sunday School Samajam. Under the administrative structure of the Diocese, the two regional Sunday School bodies (Western and Eastern Canada) have become Centres 10 & 11, with all of Canada becoming a single region. Accordingly, the Eastern Canada Centre Committee, formed on April 1, 2011, consists of two active Sunday Schools, belonging to the Canadian Mar Thoma Church and St. Mathew’s Mar Thoma Church.
The Sunday School follows the curriculum set forth by the Sunday School Samajam “Being God’s People in God’s World”. All students learn about the Mar Thoma Church history from “The Mar Thoma Church - Our Foundation and Vision”.
To maintain the faith and grow in fellowship as a community of believers, the Sunday School hosts a number of events throughout the year for the students, teachers and volunteers. An annual talent competition brings to light the many talents of our children, along with the Vacation Bible School which is one of the highlights of our summer. The students participate in the March Retreat and World Sunday School Day programs. A teachers and volunteers retreat is also held at the start of every academic year for teachers and volunteers from both parishes. Students from grades 5 to 10 also take part in the Annual Diocesan Examination every May, in which they have been achieving stellar results to date.
The Sunday School of the St. Mathew’s Mar Thoma Church is proud to foster God’s word in the hearts of children between the ages of 3 to 17. We are blessed with a group of 40 immensely talented teachers, assistants and volunteers who are dedicated and committed to the Sunday School and its goals. Common Session begins at 9:30AM followed by classes at 9:50AM.
