    This page was written at the request of some parents. It contains information needed for studying God's Law, at home, with children. It has documentation of the church-parish Gimnazia in Burlingame, CA. Gimnazia is using curriculum used by Church Gimnazia in San Francisco. Both schools exist many years. If you have any questions you can get in touch with the writer by e-mail: dorogadomoj@aol.com.

Introduction. Archpriest Seraphim Slobodskoy, in his famous textbook "The Law of God for Study at Home and School" (p.490). There are these words: "The knowledge of God is the most important of all knowledges. It is the first and most important of our duties. All science and human knowledge, if they are not illuminated by the knowledge of God loose their true meaning, its sense and its goal. Instead of good these sciences bring into life a lot of evil".
