Dear Families:

Thank you for allowing us to collaborate with you in the faith formation of your child. “Parents have the unique responsibility for the education of their children; they are the first educators, or catechists. They catechize primarily by their witness of their Christian lives and for their love for the faith.  When children are baptized, parents accept the responsibility to raise their children in the practice of the faith…”

(National Directory for Catechesis 234-235)

At Saint Andrew Religious Education program we are committed to help you foster your children’s faith, and to assist you in your role as catechist by providing an environment that will allow your children to learn, experience and grow as members of the Catholic Faith and disciples of Jesus.

Saint Andrew Religious Education Program offers the following Catechetical/Faith Formation classes:

  • Systematic Religious Education for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade
  • Sacramental Preparation for Reconciliation and Eucharist
  • Sacramental Preparation for Confirmation
  • Sacramental preparation for Baptism for children ages 7 to 17. If the student is not baptized, he/she will be place in a first year sacrament formation class.

The First Communion Program begins in 1st grade, though most students enroll in 1st and 2nd Grades, we can prepare students at any grade level. It’s never too late! The confirmation program begins in 7th grade.

  • The Archdiocese of Miami Sacramental Guidelines state that: young people, who have been baptized as infants, should be catechized for the reception of any sacrament for a period of at least two consecutive years.
