Name: Aristea Zekios
Job: Education Team Leader
Religious education is the responsibility of every member of
the Body of Christ. Not only is each member a teacher, but each member is a learner
as well. With this understanding, our parish community strives to offer every
opportunity for each soul to experience a full life in the Church. Our worship
services, fellowship activities, charitable endeavors, and educational classes all
blend together to form the education ministry.
Father Alexander Schmemann stated, "The aim of all religious
teaching in the Orthodox Church is to introduce the child or the adult into the
Church, to integrate him into her life - the life of grace, communion with God,
love, unity and spiritual progress towards eternal salvation, for such are the
essential aims of the Church." With these words in mind, truly we are presented with
an awesome challenge!
