The Fathers of the Society of Jesus have been instrumental in the establishment of Gesł Catholic Church from its inception. Gesł Parish was established as a result of the large Catholic community present in Miami. The original wooden church was built on land donated by Henry Flagler, and as Miami began to grow the need for a larger Church became a necessity. In 1921, the first cornerstone of this concrete and steel structure was laid to suit the needs of the growing Catholic community in Miami -- GesuChurch.org
