Catechesis for Children (C.C.D.)

Saint Benedict Religious Education program is devoted to help nurture the children’s faith, and to assist parents in the role of primary educators by providing an environment that will allow your children to learn, experience and grow as members of the Catholic Faith.

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.

    • Baptism (children ages 7 years old to 17)
    • First Reconciliation and First Eucharist (ages 7th years old and older)

All Children are encouraged to participate of the ongoing faith formation starting in 1st grade thru 11th grade.  The children will be prepared for the reception of Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation once complying with the two (2) years requirements by the Archdioceses of Miami Sacramental Guidelines.
