Faith Formation

Adult Education

To live our faith dynamically, we must grow in an understanding of it, not just intellectually, but spiritually – to process and internalize .  The parish provides adult faith formation sessions regularly.  Participants may bring up any aspects or questions they might have. Dialogue is encouraged. There is no need to sign up for any amount of time – each session is unique and stands alone. These sessions are held almost every Thursday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 PM in the parish hall.

 Sunday School
The formation of our children in the Faith is a grave responsibility for their parents.  The parish makes available regular faith formation classes according to our Byzantine Catholic Tradition in our Sunday School Program.  Classes are held during the school year on Sundays after the 11:00 AM Liturgy.
 
Baptismal Classes
For those who will celebrate Baptism at St. Jude, if their local parish states that we are responsible for their preparation, our parish offers baptismal classes once a month, usually on a Tuesday evening at 6:00 PM.  Those who are interested should register for the class with the parish secretary by telephone.
 
Wedding Preparation Classes

For couples preparing for the Sacrament of Crowning (Marriage) in the Byzantine Rite, the parish offers preparation sessions, scheduled according to the needs.  These can be arranged by contacting the parish secretary.

For couples preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage in the Roman Rite, the classes and preparations required by the Archdiocese of Miami must be observed.
