A total of 34 new Sunday School teachers ( 8 from Aleang, 4 from Maleai, 5 from Gaomai, 4 from Pirumeri, 3 from Arapa, 5 from Komaleai and 5 from Nila) promised to serve the parish by teaching Catholic religious instructions to children last April 26 at Nila parish Church.
They made the promise before Fr. Gerome Pelagio, in a rite called of commissioning of sunday school teachers. It included not only the sending but also the formal presentation of the Sunday school teachers to the people present and the blessing for the said teachers.
The facilitators for the workshop for the Sunday school teachers which was held at Nila from April 21—25, 2008 were Sir. Hilda Ebo,o.p., Tereta Arebonto, Sabastine Nonga, Brian Isamate and John Baptist Poleita. The Workshop included sessions on lay empowerment, summary of the catechism, learning new actions songs, presentation of Sunday books, lesson demonstrations, etc.
