A very Merry Christmas! This Christmastide God has blessed Banyan Abbey with new, reinvigorating breath. The work of Banyan Abbey had been temporarily placed on hiatus till such time as we were able to see God's clear instructions and manifestation of His blessing for us to continue to work as a community serving all God's people irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, faith or religious tradition.
After our recent move to Homestead, FL, the question of addressing the needs of the local community became the predominant concern for us to take to God in prayer. Transitions of every sort have come - all positive and challenging the conclusions we'd drawn about where we were going to be in 6 months to the next 5 years or so. The mutual support of the Apostolic Episcopal Church and the Anglican Mission in the Americas have been crucial to this new vision and mission for Banyan Abbey.
As of December 2016, we have decided to begin our very own, independent wedding ministry. This will bring Banyan Abbey to the attention of many new families, couples, organization across the
Tri-county area of (Monroe, Miami-Dade and Broward). We continue to provide Spiritual Direction and our Funeral ministries to anyone who is without a parish and the pastoral care necessary in times of crisis, uncertainty and grief.
We are currently developing a Bible study group and look forward to providing a location and times for Mass in the South Dade area.
Please keep us in your prayers and spread the word about Banyan Abbey. Please feel free to share this website with your loved ones and friends.
Please also know of our prayers for each of you, your loved ones and for the peace of Almighty God to come over each and every one of you, your homes and lives - this Christmastide and always,
