ByRob Doughty

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Coconut Grove, Florida celebrates its Centennial in 2010 by telling its unique and colorful history. Started by Bishop Gray and Flora McFarlane as a mission catering to winter visitors, "The Little Chuch in the Wildwood" has grown with The Grove through, the good times of the Roaring Twenties, to the hardships of two world wars, hurricanes, and the Great Depression. In the sixities and seventies, the Grove played host to Miami's counterculture as "hippies" took over Peacock Park, right next door to St. Stephen's. The last part of the century saw boom years as the Grove became increasingly more affluent. Through it all, St. Stephen's has served as both the spiritual and social heart of the Grove. Well-known for its Art Show, parishioners are equally dedicated to missions both to the needy in Miami as well as in Honduras and elsewhere.
