Sunday School

MALANKARA JACOBITE SUNDAY SCHOOL ASSOCIATION is a spiritual organization functioning in all the parishes of the Syrian Orthodox Church throughout the world.

It takes care of the spiritual nurturing of the children, by bringing them up in the knowledge and fellowship of Jesus Christ and His Church.

The classes are conducted in Malayalam for the children in Kerala and for others in English. It has a separate wing for the outer Kerala region.

The classes range from Pre-primary classes to the 12th class. As in secular schools, class ten concludes the secondary level and a certificate is awarded Sunday School  Certificate  to the successful candidates.

Higher Secondary course is for another two years. We follow a curriculum, jointly prepared and published by the M.J.S.S.A. which is revised from time to time.

The vacation Bible School conducted during the mid summer holidays (JSVBS) is a very vibrant wing of the M.J.S.S.A. we publish separate text books, devotional materials, song books and cassettes for the JSVBS every year.
