For many, religious education means Sunday Church School. However, it entails much more than that. Religious education takes place when we attend the Divine Liturgy and pray together in Church, when we help a child light a devotional candle, when we pray before a meals and when we read our Bible or attend a class. Religious Education in the Orthodox Church is really about developing a personal relationship with Christ and sharing His saving message with those around us.
In addition to the Orthodox Catechism Project, the Metropolis of Denver utlizes resources available from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Department of Religious Education.
