“St. Thomas Sunday School kicked off the ecclesiastical new year with a beautiful Agiasmos service. Our children prayed with us during the Divine Liturgy and received the blessing of our Lord, our Panagia, and our Patron Saint, St. Thomas, for a productive school year. It is always wonderful to see many of our children brighten our church and our classrooms again. Our community is blessed to have dedicated Sunday School Catechists, faithful parents, and exceptional students who are eager to learn about Christ, and of course, an exceptional priest, Fr. Avgoustinos Psomas, who so much loves our youth!”
