Holy Family Episcopal Church Miami

Our History

For the past fifty-nine years, Holy Family Episcopal Church has been a center for sacred worship, blessed family fellowship, a respite for the community, and a refuge from the storms of life in the world beyond its walls. Holy Family was founded in 1957 and first dubbed Holy Angels, a name which the Diocesan Bishop requested be considered because there were already five parishes with the angelic names. This was a time just prior to the significant social and demographic metamorphosis of the 1960s and 1970s. A total of twelve priests have served the parish and community.

During the past five decades the church has erected two edifices, nurtured thousands of youth, lifted up three of its sons and daughters for holy orders, and members have prayed, worked, cried and rejoiced together through triumphs and tribulations. Most importantly, it has remained a center for Christian fellowship, seeking to welcome and nourish all who come, spiritually, emotionally, and socially, as circumstances will allow.

Since the late 1970s the church has been a proud witness to the beauty of God’s human garden by intentionally welcoming, embracing, and involvement of the cultural diversity of the world in which it exists. Members of the current congregation hail from twenty-three nations.

The vision of the founders was sound and secure for the planning of Holy Family in this community… Growth in Christian fellowship and love has remained the hallmark of this “Family” of faith.
