Young citizens of Ufa study Church Slavonic language

author: Irene Bakke

The pupils of the Sunday school under the Ufa church by the Holy Martyr and Healer Panteleimon began studying the Church Slavonic language under the guidance of the pedagogue Vera Derkatch.

The pedagogue, rewarded with the diploma of the all-Russian children and youth music and art contest, a member of the Painters Union of Russia, pedagogue Vera Derkatch shows the strange and intricate images of the Church Slavonic letters from the ancient books – the letters, belonging to different epochs and styles, to the children and offers them to decorate these preliminary prepared intermediates as a home task. Such lessons will become a test step to initial mastering of the Church Slavonic language and such experiment should help the children to master the Christian culture better. Later the pupils of the Sunday school will take part in the competition “Letter”, held by the Ufa Eparchy. The contest will be dedicated to the Days of Slavic literature and culture.
