In preparation for the reception of Baptism by our children, instruction is provided for the parents and godparents. Preparation classes are held monthly in English and Spanish at the parish and include instruction on the Sacrament and an overview of the liturgy of Baptism. Upcoming classes are published in the Parish bulletin.

The Eucharist is the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, in which He is present under the forms of bread and wine, offering Himself in the Sacrifice of the Mass and giving Himself as spiritual food to the faithful.

The reception of the Blessed Eucharist for the first time in a child's life is a wonderful moment. Family, catechists, priests and community all contribute to preparing the child to enter this new phase of an ever deepening communion with Christ

The parish Religious Education program offers both parents and children a deeper understanding of the Eucharist. Please visit our Religious Ed. Section on our website for details on the First Communion preparation program for children.
In the Archdiocese of Miami the celebration of the sacrament of confirmation generally occurs in the teenage years, completing the sacraments of initiation for our young people.

In the sacrament of penance or reconciliation, we celebrate God's forgiving and healing love. The reception of this sacrament ought to be prepared for by an examination of conscience made in the light of the Word of God.

Please call the parish office to make an appointment. Reconciliation Liturgies are offered during the seasons of Advent and Lent. Please check the church bulletins for more information.

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.
