St. Andrew Church

Registration is Open.

Dear Parishioners of Saint Andrew:

Registration is now open for the 2022-2023 school year at Saint Andrew Catholic School and Saint Andrew Religious Education program, and for Vacation Bible School in June.

I strongly encourage parents to consider Saint Andrew Catholic School (Pre-K 2 through Grade 8) for their child’s education. During these especially important formative years, Saint Andrew School offers Catholic faith formation, academic excellence, healthy discipline, and development of the whole child (fine arts, robotics, sports, etc.). Established in 1976, Saint Andrew School is the only elementary school in the Archdiocese of Miami to hold a dual accreditation with the Florida Catholic Conference and Cognia, Inc. We accept financial scholarships, including StepUp for Students, and offer a tuition discount to active parishioners, in an effort to make Catholic education available to as many families as possible.

For more details, including to arrange for a tour of the school, please visit the school’s website (www.standrewscatholicschool.com) or call (954) 753-1280.

For those parents with children in public or private non-Catholic schools, please be sure to register your child for Religious Education classes here at Saint Andrew. Classes include, but are not limited to, preparation for the sacraments of First Holy Communion with First Reconciliation (Confession), and Confirmation. It is the policy of the Archdiocese of Miami that students are to have two years of religious education in preparation for the reception of these sacraments.

Registration for new and continuing students for next school year is conveniently available via the “Religious Education” section of our parish website (www.standrewparish.org/religious-education).

Finally, after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, I am happy to announce that Vacation Bible School (VBS) will be held on June 20th - 24th.

Students in Kindergarten through Grade 5 are invited to climb aboard “Rocky Railroad!”, a faith-filled adventure where children will experience that it is Jesus who pulls them through life’s ups and downs.

For fees and other details, please contact Mrs. Beatriz Castro at (954) 905-6322 or [email protected].

Be sure to register early, space is limited!

Saint Andrew Parish is eager work with parents to provide safe educational environments for our children to grow in faith, wisdom and love. Don’t miss out, register now.

May the Lord continue to bless you and your families with His love!

Monsignor Michael A. Souckar
