Sunday School and Nursery at St. Mary’s

From September 13th, 2020 through May 23rd, 2021, Sunday School happens at 10:30 AM via Zoom until remote morning prayer begins at 10:50 AM. Children from infancy to 12 years old are welcome!

The Sunday School Year runs from the first Sunday after Labor Day until the Feast of Pentecost (May 23rd) with Mother Mariclair and parent volunteers leading age-appropriate, scripture-based lessons, crafts, and songs from the Seasons of the Spirit Growing in Faith curriculum. All the student needs is an internet connection, paper, crayons, and a snack for our Feast!

Sunday School and Nursery Volunteers

Sara Macro Forrest has been a parishioner at St. Mary’s Hamilton Village for 15 years, and Sunday school teacher for over ten years.  She is the mother of two teenage daughters, alumni of St Mary’s Nursery School, and godmother of two. She works at Bryn Mawr College, and in her spare time enjoys gardening, jogging, and crocheting. Spending time with the children and youth of St Mary’s, and watching their spiritual growth, has been a blessing in her life.

Vanessa Albert Lowry has been a member at St. Mary’s since 1985, when she was at Law School at Penn.  She began teaching Sunday school when her elder son was 5 or 6.  He is now 17. Her younger son is 13 and recently confirmed. She is excited to begin serving the next cohort of young children and their families as a caregiver and teacher by providing a safe and welcoming place for children and a place where each has the opportunity to begin to engage, at their own pace, with the stories, music and ideas that shape our faith.

Kia DaSilva grew up attending Sunday School at St. Mary’s, and is a presence in the Nursery every Sunday during the academic year as a paid worker. Kia is now an undergraduate at Penn, and is active in student theater and debate societies.
