St. Thomas Cherry Hill Sunday School Students Receive Certificates

CHERRY HILL, NJ – The St. Thomas Orthodox Faith Sunday School Final Sunday for the ecclesiastical year 2020-2021 was held on May 23 at St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church in Cherry Hill. Even though this was a virtual year of learning about the Orthodox faith, the students came together in-person to celebrate the end of the year, receive their certificates from Fr. Christoforos Oikonomidis, presiding priest of the St. Thomas community, and enjoy a sweet treat from Mister Softee.

Sunday School director Rania Pappas also participated in the event which was attended by the parishioners as well as the proud families of the students.

We wish the community, the students and their families a happy summer vacation.
