Mission

The mission of the Department of Religious Education is to serve the parishes and metropolises of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America by providing materials and services that will advance their programs of religious education for all ages.

The Department also serves individuals, organizations, military bases, ecumenical groups, and overseas parishes with catechetical resources that advance the spiritual admonition to:

"Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ..." (2 Peter 3:18)

Programs, Publications & Services

The Department of Religious Education is about more than just "Sunday School"—we're committed to providing lifetime learning resources to equip the saints. This commitment is brought to life in the department's wide range of results-driven programs, publications and services.
