The heart of this church, this building and all that we do here at St. Benedict's, is Jesus.

About 2,000 years ago God was born as a man, Jesus Christ. He shared our human life, and taught people about justice, truth, forgiveness and love. He also taught that God made us ALL to be his sons and daughters, to live forever in love with him. Jesus was put to death by the religious people of his day, mostly because he threatened their power. But three days later he appeared again alive, first to his friends, and then to many others. He told them to take his message and his promise of eternal life all over the world. But, the night before he died he gathered his friends for a sacred meal and told them to continue to do it in his memory. At St. Benedict’s we celebrate Eucharist often, but most especially on Saturdays and Sundays, as we celebrate the day of the Lord’s resurrection.

Christians try to follow the way of life Jesus taught, but we don’t do it alone because we believe he is still with us in the community of faith, the sacraments and in so many varied ways. When we give our lives to him, he puts his own Spirit in us to help us live his way. When we are baptized, we are washed of our sins and promised eternal life. When we gather together in church to celebrate and share Holy Eucharist (also known as Communion or Mass), he gives himself to us in the consecrated bread and wine, and sends us out as his body on earth to do his will.

This church – St. Benedict’s in Plantation, Florida – exists only to proclaim these truths, to serve and to inspire all to a greater love of God and neighbor! Our mission is “to know Christ and make His love known” Come and become part of our spiritual family; firmly rooted in the Anglican heritage, which is enriched by both the “Catholic” and “Reformed” traditions.

The Episcopal Church is part of the world-wide Anglican Communion and we invite all baptized Christians (regardless of what church or denomination you were baptized in or come from) to receive the sacrament of Holy Eucharist with us; not because we take the Eucharist lightly, but because we take our baptism so seriously. Join us and be nourished with Jesus in Word and Sacrament!
