SUNDAY SCHOOL – Catherine Tutton

The St. Paul’s Sunday school was the first Sunday School established in Canada, with the first classes being held in 1783.

Today, the St. Paul’s Sunday School operates out of the St. Paul’s parish house across the street from the church on Argyle street. The Sunday School welcomes all children between the ages of 4 and 18 and holds classes every Sunday from September to June. During the summer months, the parish youth and children meet together outside during Sunday services as part of the St. Paul’s garden programme.

Are you over 18 and love Sunday School? Please consider joining us as a teacher. It can be very rewarding to learn along with the children and youth. You are never too old! For more info, please contact the Parish Office.

YOUTH COORDINATOR – Benjamin von Bredow

The role of the St. Paul’s Youth Coordinator is to foster the parish-based Christian spiritual and intellectual formation of young people at St. Paul’s, attending to the pastoral needs of the teens in general and the participating students in particular, and along the way helping them to form a community of mutual friendship and support. The mandate of the Youth Coordinator is to guide their transition from childhood to adult faith, helping young people to claim the Christian faith as their own by praying, learning, and building relationships among themselves, with those currently not parish members, and with the rest of their intergenerational parish. Because of the focus on the transition to adult faith, the target age group for this ministry is teens, drawing in both late pre-teens, young teens, and high school parishioners, and their friends, but beginning with a focus on the younger end of this spectrum because of the foundation already laid in the St. Paul’s pre-teen youth group.  A weekly Tuesday evening (6:30pm) youth group gathering is the cornerstone of the ministry.
