Religious Education are Currently in Session.
For the safety of our children, please adhere to the safe arrival and dismissal procedures and drive carefully in the parking lot.

Thank you for your commitment to your child's faith formation and attendance at parent meetings.

It is the goal of the parish to provide religious education for every child in the parish. No person on the grounds of race, color, or national origin is excluded or otherwise subjected to discrimination in receiving services at the religious education program.

In rare cases, the parish may not be able to invite a student into the program because it does not have the resources to meet the special needs of the child. In such cases, the parish will assist the parents in providing catechesis for their child, especially in preparation for the sacraments.

We do not discriminate in hiring, promotion, discharge, pay, fringe benefits, job training, classification, referral and other aspects of employment on the basis of race, color, disability, age, gender or national origin.

The pastor has the final decision in matters of admission or dismissal to the program or to the reception of a sacrament.

Administration and Organization
Under the direction and authority of our pastor, Rev. Edward M. Kelly, the Religious Education program is administered by Mrs. Gladys Jacobs, the Director of Religious Education who may be contacted at 954-345-7071 or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Attendance and Early Release
Classes meet weekly from September through April. A calendar of days off and special events is provided. Please refer to the Religious Education calendar for days off and holiday closures. Regular attendance is required at all classes.

Two excused absences are permitted each year. Excessive absences may delay the reception of the sacraments. In the event of absence, please notify the Religious Education office at 954-345-7071 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Early dismissal is disruptive to class and therefore discouraged. To avoid interruption of class prayer time, students cannot be dismissed during the last 15 minutes of class. (Please refer to the RE Handbook for Early Release procedures.)

Safety and Safe Environment
“Recognizing that each individual is created by God, the Archdiocese of Miami is committed to the safety and well-being of its children and vulnerable adults. It has implemented procedures to minimize risk and barriers, and to build and foster a culture of a safe environment. The Archdiocese does not tolerate abuse or neglect of anyone. It will comply with all obligations of civil and canon law; it will promote healing where it is needed; provide education, training and guidance when it is appropriate, and endeavor to prevent any abuse of minors or vulnerable adults with firm justice and mercy towards all.” (Archdiocesan Policy)

In accordance with the Archdiocese of Miami Safety Guidelines, the Virtus program on child safety and awareness will be presented to your child(ren). The lessons provide children with the information and tools to guard themselves against those who may try to harm them. Parents are welcome to attend this lesson.

Parents who do not wish their child(ren) to participate MUST opt out. Opt out forms and a handbook of presentations are available in the Religious Education office.

All classrooms are secured for the safety of the children. School doors will be locked 5 minutes after the start of class and re-opened 5 minutes prior to dismissal. Please adhere to the safety guidelines stated in the handbook for safe drop off and pick up procedures.

Reporting Physical and/or Sexual Abuse
Parents and guardians should understand that Florida State law requires a teacher or administrator, who has reasonable suspicion that sexual or physical abuse has occurred, to report this to the Division of Children and Family Services.

Student Conduct and Discipline Policy
Our program is faith based, Christian values are taught and expected by all participants. Students are expected to be respectful to each other, catechist volunteers, peer ministers and staff members.

Our discipline policy is as follows: Disruptive students who cannot be redirected in class will be sent to the office, a second offence will result in a call to the parents. A student who engages in conduct, whether inside or outside the religious education program, that is contrary to the moral code of the Catholic Church may be asked to leave the program.

Appropriate attire is expected of our students. Students are expected to show respect and modesty for themselves, undergarments should not be visible. NO offensive words or images can be printed on garments.

Cell phones are to be given to the catechist at the start of class. Cell phones used during class will be confiscated; parents may pick up cell phones in the Religious Education office at the end of class.

The Director of Religious Education and/or Pastor is the final recourse in all disciplinary situations and may waive any disciplinary rules for just cause at his/her discretion.

Substance Abuse Policy
All Archdiocesan religious education programs are committed to a drug free environment. The use or possession of illegal drugs, illegal mood altering substances, alcoholic beverages, or drug-related paraphernalia by any student on parish property or while attending or participating in any religious education program sponsored activity is forbidden. The abuse of prescription or over the counter drugs is also forbidden. Transgression of this rule will result in disciplinary action, which may include dismissal from the religious education program, even for a first offense.

Weapons Policy
Weapons are not permitted anywhere on religious education program grounds. Students who bring weapons, are in possession of weapons, or who threaten others with weapons or items used as weapons on religious education program grounds may be expelled from the program.

Anti-Bullying Policy
The Archdiocese of Miami has a strict policy against bullying. A complete copy of the Archdiocesan Anti-Bully Policy is available in the Religious Education office.

Student Withdrawal
The Catholic Church considers the parents to be the primary catechists of their children. The education of a student is a partnership between the parents and the religious education program. Just as the parent has the right to withdraw a child if desired, the religious education program administration reserves the right to require the withdrawal of a student if the administration determines that the partnership is irretrievably broken. As part of this partnership, parents are expected to pay the tuition that is charged for the Religious Education Program.

Use of Student Pictures and Videos
The religious education program reserves the right to use student pictures in publications. Any parent who wishes to opt out must notify the Director/Coordinator of Religious Education in writing prior to the beginning of the religious education program year.
