The first Sunday school opens

The Rev. William Augustus Muhlenberg opened the first Sunday school on May 27 1821. Soon there were 260 pupils, mainly girls, who learned to memorize Bible passages, hymns and the church catechism. They met in a school house, two stories high, built on the site of the present parish house.
