Gesu, Miami's Oldest Catholic Church, Gets A Godly Restoration

New, 2 comments

Miami's oldest catholic church, Gesu on NE 2nd Street and 1st Avenue, got spruced up just in time for Christmas, according to the Miami Herald. The growing parish, many of whom walk to mass from the flanks of brand spanking new condo towers in the neighborhood, spent $220,000 on a new paint job, touching up faded murals on the interiors, bell tower restoration, and new emblems on the church's exterior iron grillwork. Next up, the original bell, a gift from a New Orleans priest in 1897, will be put back into service up in the tower.
