Welcome to our site.

Crest of the Episcopal Diocese of Southeast Florida

Close to downtown Miami in Florida, Holy Comforter Episcopal Church serves a diverse community in varied ministries, including separate Sunday services in English and Spanish, feeding the needy, senior housing and children's day care facilities.

The Episcopal Church is Eucharistic (thanksgiving) centered in liturgy and worship, retaining many of the ancient traditions of the early Christian and Roman Catholic churches.

But whatever your background, we welcome you to this site and encourage you to visit our church in person and experience the love of God through us. "May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you."

Advent and Christmas

The word Advent is from the Latin adventus for "coming" and is associated with the four weeks of preparation for Christmas.

Advent has been a time of spiritual reflection as well as cheer and anticipation. It blends together a penitential spirit, very similar to Lent, a liturgical theme of preparation for the Second and Final Coming of the Lord, called the Parousia, and a joyful theme of getting ready for the Bethlehem event.

Advent always contains four Sundays, beginning on the Sunday nearest the feast of St. Andrew the Apostle and continuing until December 24. In 2011, Advent begins on November 27.
