The Episcopal Church strives to live by the message of Christ, in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome. Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Christ.
The Episcopal Diocese of Southeast Florida includes 83 congregations, with approximately 38,000 parishioners, from Key West north to Jensen Beach and west to Clewiston.

Haiti is one of the most economically challenged countries in the world, with 80% of its population living in poverty. The devastating quake that hit on January 12, 2010, has greatly increased the amount of need in Haiti—it destroyed much of the country’s infrastructure, disrupted trade, dramatically raised prices and made it more difficult for Haitians to support themselves and their families. Episcopal Relief & Development has a longstanding partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Haiti. The key component of this partnership both currently and prior to the earthquake has been the Haiti Development Initiative.

In Honduras where the plight of abused and abandoned girls was once ignored, the ministry of Our Little Roses home has become an oasis of hope and opportunity for the girl child at risk. God has truly blessed this ministry shown in the transformed lives of once destitute girls. It began with a vision given to Doctor Diana Frade of hope with life-changing dimensions for physically and emotionally abused girls as well as orphans.
The Café is collaborative effort by more than two dozen writers and editors, and an ever-growing list of visual artists. Together, we aspire to create a visually appealing, intellectually stimulating, spiritually enriching and at least occasionally amusing site where Episcopalians and those interested in our church can read, watch, listen and reflect upon contemporary life in a context informed by faith and animated by the spirit of charity.
