Faith Formation Program for Adults
Brothers and Sisters,
Welcome to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Charity – Ermita de la Caridad.
We offer this program as support to the adult faith formation programs of the archdiocesan parishes of Miami.
This is NOT an abbreviated or substitute program of parish RCIA, nor it is a quick preparation for sacraments. We follow the Lord’s command to His Apostles, at the end of the Gospel of St. Matthew:
“Go you to the end of the Earth, baptizing in the name of the Father, of the Son, and the Holy Spirit, TEACHING all that I have taught you”
[Mt. 28: 19-20].
This ministry is the inspiration of the founder of this Shrine, Most Reverend Agustin Roman.
It will be our greatest spiritual desire to serve and share our knowledge of faith with all of you.
Rev. Fr. Jose Espino
