Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles, Adelantado of Florida and founder of St. Augustine, landed here at the chief village of the Tequesta Indians early in 1567. He returned several Indians held captive on the West Coast and established friendly relations with the Tequesta chief. Father Juan Rogel and brother Francisco Villareal organized a Jesuit mission near the thirty, man fort built by the Spanish. Brother Villareal wrote the first letter known to have been written in Miami – 1568, and described the life of the Indians, complained of the mosquitoes and recorded the first plays staged in this area, one a religious comedy about the flesh and the devil.

Gesù Church was founded in 1896 as the Holy Name Parish by Father Ambrose Fontan and is the oldest Catholic Church in Miami. A new church was constructed in 1897 on land donated by Henry Flagler, but the parish quickly outgrew the small wooden church. The current church building, at 118 Northeast Street, was built in 1925 to the design of Orin T. Williams.

The external simplified Mediterranean revival style exterior is distinguished by a monumental triple-arched portico, crowned by a tripartite bell tower with triple decorative arches. The rich interior decoration, in the Baroque decorative tradition, was not completed until the 1950’s.

Gesu Church continues to serve as one of the three downtown churches and was recently restored to its original appearance. The parish has been staffed by the Jesuits of Antilles province since 2004. Previously it was staffed by the Jesuits of New Orleans province.

How much does a wedding in Miami Florida cost?

Question by Yanet Garcia: How much does a wedding in Miami Florida cost?
I wan’t to have a nice big wedding around august of next year. My fiancee and I will start saving this year so by next august we’ll have enough money for a nice big wedding. I already have enough for the dress that I want which is $ 1000+ so if anyone has any experience please get back to me.

Best answer:

Answer by planner
wedding costs depend upon what the couple has to spend, not on the location of the wedding. all cities, including miami florida, offer weddings from cheap to ultra expensive. so the cost depends upon what you want to do, what you decide to serve, where you have the wedding, how many guests you have, etc.

people can get married on the beach in miami for a few hundred dollars, at the courthouse for even less, or they can get married in a church, at a banquet hall, a wedding venue, a hotel, a country club, or hundreds of other locations and the cost can be 50,000 dollars or more.

so, you would need to tell us what you want to do, what sort of wedding you want to have, how many guests you want to have and what type of venue you want before we can really give you any idea of what the costs would be.

ps. the dress is not the place to start. you should start with the venue.
