In 1937 Bishop Wing of the Diocese of South Florida accepted the offer of The Revd Joseph Mitchell Taylor to survey the area at his own expense. A former Rector of St Andrew’s in Fort Pierce and Vicar of Holy Comforter Church in Miami, Taylor found that there were 300 Episcopalians living in the area, who were eager to have their own church on the Beach.
‘ …. for I was hungry and you gave me food, thirsty and you gave me something to drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you gave me clothing, sick and you took care of me … “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”’ Matthew 25.35,40
