Church School classes meet at 11:15 am every Sunday immediately following Communion, September through May, with recess for the Christmas holidays. We have four dedicated teacher teams instructing the students according to age.  We are grateful for our students and thankful that our future looks bright at Saint Anthony's. 

Bryan Mason serves as Coordinator of the Church School Program.

The choir is under the directorship of Sovreyne Chadwick and Laura Farris. It sings in a four part harmony style largely based on Obikhod and Kievan chant. It also has various compositions including Byzantine, Serbian, Romanian, and Georgian chants. The congregation tends to join with the singing of the choir. The architectural style of the interior of temple, with its 24’ high barrel ceiling, enhances the singing to provide an atmosphere of prayer conducive to public worship. 

The choir possesses a comprehensive repertoire of music for Great Lent including the canon of Saint Andrew of Crete, Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, Akathist to the Theotokos, the services of Holy Week, and the Divine services of Holy Pascha. Rehearsals are usually held on a seasonal basis. For more information, contact Dr. Robert Vranes.
