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.

{This is the first of three articles outlining the mission of Poiema Church to “follow Jesus together and liberate this generation with us.” Please look for the second two articles in the series: Life in Community and Life in Culture.}


All spiritual life flows from Jesus Christ, the eternal source of life. We follow Jesus by abiding in Him and walking in the newness of His resurrection life. Because Christ is our life, we devote ourselves to worship (adoring and submitting to God in Christ), and discipleship (growing in Christ-likeness). We encounter God together and we are transformed in His presence. Our times of worship define us and inspire us to live for God every day.

We measure our success by the disciples we become and produce, not appearances, attendance or programs. Being, making and multiplying disciples of Jesus are central to all we do. We keep our ministry structures simple and focused on helping people know Christ, grow in Christ and reach others for Him.

Healthy families begin, thrive, and encourage one another to pursue God’s blueprint for the home. Because godly husbands and fathers are foundational to a healthy family, we place a special emphasis on calling and equipping men to lead and provide for their families.

Single men and women are fully engaged at Poiema Church and pursue lives of personal, social and sexual integrity. We are especially sensitive to single parents, and seek to assist them in parenting their children alone.

As a downtown Phoenix Church, we seek to embody the life of Christ in our urban community by serving the homeless, mentoring urban kids and partnering with other organizations and Phoenix Churches to advocate for the voiceless and build God’s Kingdom.

Historical Facts – “Proof that Islam is the truth” [10]

some of the amazing historical facts that we can find in the Quran. Let’s remind ourselves of course that the Quran is a book 1400 years old. Muslims believe it was revealed by God, the Creator of the Heavens & the Earth, Allah. It’s the Arabic name for God. The one God, the Creator, the All-knowing, the All-wise. The Quran mentions that the ark, that’s the boat that Noah built, came to rest upon mount Judi, “istawa Judi”, istawa came to rest upon the mountain of Judi.

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton And Mysticism?

We haven’t spoken in this account of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton about any visions, locutions or mysticism. Quite honestly, that’s because we haven’t come across anything of that nature. And Mother Seton had always been a very down-to-earth, practical woman. However, the time was to come when the Lord would decide when the community would be built, where it would be built, and how it would be financed

Downtown Church

Downtown Church

Hailed as one of Americana and folk music’s most esteemed artists, Patty Griffin has sold over a million records and was awarded with the Americana Music Association’s highest honor as “Artist Of The Year” in 2007. Griffin has received multiple Grammy nominations and has toured the country relentlessly, creating avid followers wherever her music is heard. She is a natural songbird that can hush an audience with her performances, but Griffin’s power is in her passionate storytelling with a voice that is mournful yet uplifting. Patty Griffin’s new album, Downtown Church, is a collection of Gospel-infused songs produced by longtime friend, bandmate and acclaimed producer Buddy Miller at the Downtown Presbyterian Church in Nashville, TN. Downtown Church brings to life Gospel songs that have influenced contemporary music in a way that only Patty Griffin can do.
