Three Saints' Sunday School is devoted to Orthodox Christian education (catechesis). The purpose of this is to help build up the Church, the Body of Christ by nurturing every person in the life of personal communion with the Holy Trinity (Troitsa). Being only a part of the total life of the Church, Orthodox Christian education is effective in the context of living faith in the home and the church.
