Sunday School kids visited St. John the Divine Cathedral in New York City on Saturday May 4th, 2013. This was the first field trip organized by the Sunday School. Kids were joined by Achen, Kochamma, teachers, parents and some grand parents for the visit. It was a fun-filled educational trip. Kids were awe-struck at the grandeur and architecture of the church. They also got glimpse of the Ordination ceremony and Holy Eucharist that was being conducted during the time of the visit. Probably, we mattered the most was they had good time with their classmates and friends in a setting away from the regular sunday school.
