GC Sunday School

The Origin

The First English-based Catholic Sunday School in Surabaya. Redemptor Mundi’s own English-based youth group has a long history to begin with. It started back in the year 2006 when Fr.Boedi was still head of the parish. Fr. Jelantik was tasked to form the Sunday School for the parish’s morning English mass. On October 2006, Fr Jelantik gathered 7 people to formulate and kickstart the Sunday school; they were Anna, David, Evi, Ivone, Rico, Siska and Tina. The first meeting was at Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral, discussing from the curriculum, roster and method of teaching for the class which began at Advent 2006.

The Sunday school classes was started only with one class, and as the year progressed, more children attended the class and by the end of year 2007, there arose the need to divide the class to 2 groups, primary and pre-primary class. As the year progressed, more and more youth and young adults helped out at the Sunday School, there were initiatives from the community to create a group which cater to the spiritual needs of the youth by using English as first language.

Our Sunday School program has been formed since 2006. The teachers contributed their experiences to Sunday School using styles adopted from many different countries including Australia and Singapore. Sunday School began with only one class handled by 6 teachers and as the number of kids and teachers grew, the number of classes expanded to 2 and now to 4. The Sunday School team is innovative, creative and is rapidly evolving; catering to the Kids using a contemporary style of teaching the Gospel.
