FAITH FORMATION

The Faith Formation at Saint James will reach out to all members of our parish family to encourage them in their pilgrim journey; to educate them in their faith life as followers of Jesus; to increase their participation in the liturgical life of the faith community; to challenge and engage them in their practice of  the life of faith according to the values of the Gospel; to help them build a life of prayer; to increase their awareness of their mission and responsibility to the faith community and to the larger community.


Faith Formation promotes: Knowledge of the Faith, Liturgical Education, Moral Formation, Prayer, Education for Community Life, Evangelization.


As a parish, under the guidance and leadership of the Pastor, Saint James continues the message of Jesus Christ that provides the foundation upon which a life of faith, hope, and love is built. We welcome the people of God; we fulfill our baptismal promise to teach about God in the Catholic tradition; we encourage our community to live the Gospel in service to one another; and we celebrate together in prayer and sacrament.

CHILDREN FAITH FORMATION

Wednesdays starting at 6:15PM

Religious Education is a ministry of the Catholic Church. We assist families in Catholic faith formation and in sacramental preparation (Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation). We offer a continuous program for students in First grade through Confirmation. Curriculum is based on Scripture, Roman Catholic doctrine, prayer, traditions, and principles in an age appropriate setting and is approved by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. The effectiveness of our program assumes respect and cooperation between the students, parents and our staff.

The program classes are held on Wednesday from September through May. All staff and volunteers are screened according to the guidelines of the Archdiocese of Miami Safe Environment Program.

For more information, please contact the office at 305-681-7428.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS

Tuesdays Starting at 6:30 pm

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process used by the Catholic Church to present the beliefs of this faith to those adults who have made a conscious decision to explore coming into full communion with the Church.

 

RCIA/Adult Faith Formation classes are held on a Tuesday evening from September until Easter. RCIA is for:

  • Adults who have never been baptized

  • Those who were baptized in another Christian denomination and want to officially enter the Catholic Church​

  • Baptized Catholics who are missing the Sacraments of Holy Communion and/or Confirmation

  • Catholics who have received all their Sacraments but who want to learn more about their faith
