Education in the faith is the privilege of parents. The Basilica of St. Mary Star of the Sea Children’s Religious Education program assists parents in the education of children in the Catholic faith, including preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. Whether your family is actively involved, just entering the Church, returning to the practice of the Catholic faith, or delayed your child’s sacramental preparation, all are welcome.

Religious Education enrollment for Fall 2017 is now open and you are invited to register at the Religious Education Office located in The Basilica School at 700 Truman Ave.

Classes (held every Wednesday evening from 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM) begin again on September 6, 2017. 

Please note we have added Kindergarten classes to our ongoing program.

Please register early!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

For more information please contact Ida Roberts, our Director of Religious Education at (305) 295-0306 or email her at

Once a month there will be a special Mass in the Basilica for all the Religious Education (CCD) students and their parents.
