Baptismal Preparation

Baptismal Preparation is of utmost importance because children are baptized in the faith of the Church. Therefore, it is necessary that parents and sponsors, who are members of the Church of the Epiphany community, be invited to renew their beliefs and to recognize their responsibility in bringing their child into the faith.

For this reason, there is a mandatory Baptismal Preparation Program for the parents prior to baptizing children at our Parish. Your questions, concerns, or problems regarding Baptism in general or specifics for your family will be addressed by one of the priests or deacons before your child's Baptism or during the class.

To sign up for the next Baptismal Class, please visit the Rectory, Monday to Fridays, between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM. The Rectory is located at 8081 SW 54th Court, Miami, FL 33143.

Marriage

"The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament." (Canon 1055)

As a parish, Epiphany Church takes its responsibilities in the preparation and celebration of the sacrament of matrimony very seriously. As a community, we rejoice that you have chosen your parish church for your wedding. We further hope you are taking this momentous step in your lives with joy and with a commitment to share your lives with each other forever.

The Archdiocese of Miami, also vigilant about the seriousness of entering into a lifelong union, has issued special regulations regarding marriage between minors and up to nineteen (19) years of age. Epiphany supports and observes this regulation.

In order to enable the couple to carry out the proper preparation, we require a ten to twelve month period prior to the wedding. When one of our parishioners is ready to set a date for his or her marriage, it will be necessary for the couple to come to the Rectory Office to make their intentions known.

Times of weddings at Epiphany

Fridays:
7:30 p.m. or earlier
