Religious Education

Religious Education

Catechism is an education in the faith of children, young people and adults. It includes especially the teaching of Christian doctrine in an organic and systematic way, with a view to initiating the person into the fullness of Christian life.

Students meet every Sunday from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. Parents are asked to attend Sunday Mass at St. Kieran’s with their children either before or after Religious Ed. class. The new school year starts on Sunday after Labor Day. Students meet at Immaculata-LaSalle High School just next to our Parish Church when school is in session. Parents are also encouraged to participate in the Adult formation program offered at the same time.


Programs Available:

  • RCIA for children: A one-year program for children 7 y. o. or older that need the sacrament of Baptism
  • First Communion: A two-year program for children between 1st and 5th grade.
  • Confirmation: A Two-year program for youth between 6th to 10th grade.
  • Confirmation for Young Adults: A one-year program for young adults between 11th and 12th grade.

Please register your children to become fully active in their faith and give them the gift of understanding the teachings of the Faith and of the Sacraments, the greatest gift you, as parents, can give your children. Our Religious Education program is coordinated by the Salesian Sisters.

Holy Orders

The Office of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Miami encourages all who wish to seek the will of God in their lives to consider the priesthood or religious life. Throughout the year, focus groups and vocational retreats are open to help people who are considering a vocation in the Church.

If you think you feel the call to the priesthood or religious life, do not let time pass by. Call directly our pastor or contact the vocations director for the Archdiocese of Miami.

Anointing of the Sick 

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick renews and comforts those who are afflicted or dying. Please, contact the parish office if someone is in need of Anointing of the Sick and the person is at home. If the person in need of the Anointing of the Sick is at the Hospital, please contact the Pastoral Care Department of said Hospital.

We are very sorry for your loss. Immediately following death, the family, usually with the assistance of the funeral director, makes arrangements for the funeral. Please have the Funeral Home call the parish office. You may also visit or call the parish office to arrange for a Funeral Mass.

Does the catholic church allow cremation?

Yes, the Funeral Rites of the Church may be held in the presence of the cremated remains of the deceased. The cremated remains of a body should be treated with the same respect given to the human body from which they come. This includes the use of a worthy vessel to contain the ashes, the manner in which they are carried and their final disposition. Cremated remains should be buried in a grave or entombed in a mausoleum or columbarium.

The practice of scattering cremated remains on the sea, from the air, or on the ground, or keeping the remains at home of the deceased are not the reverend disposition that the Church requires.
