Spiritual Education of Children

Children’s weekly spiritual education classes seek to develop in them virtues such as trustworthiness, honesty, and justice in order to develop a sense of purpose and enable the

5-11 age groups to have a good foundation for achieving excellence in all aspects of life – material, intellectual, and spiritual.
