History

Saint John's Episcopal Church was founded by a group of faithful Anglicans from Long Island, Bahamas in the  twenties. Services were first held in a wooden house of one of the parishioners. As the number of congregants grew,a place of worship was needed. The property where the current church resides was given by Frank and Sadie Deal. The Church was always a traditional parish holding morning prayer  second and fourth Sunday of each month and had the Mass every first and thirds Sunday for years. The Church became a sister parish to St. Patrick's Episcopal Church, Palm Beach under the leadership of  Fr. Samuel J. Brown for over twenty six years. Several Priest  served at this Church. Saint John's was under the leadership of Fr. Dom Orsini, for over fifteen years. In  the year of our lord two thousand and five, the need for a full time priest came and God sent us Fr. David C. Kennedy and under his leadership the church went back to the traditional doctrines of the Episcopal Church, became a sister church to St. Cuthbert's Episcopal Church. In 2009-2010  Fr. David left the Episcopal Church  to go to the Anglican Catholic Church, from there the church was in need of a priest, in the mean time three faithful members of our church, Christopher Glinton,Jordan Jean and Richard Knowles lead us in Traditional Rite 1 Morning Prayer Service until we selected a priest. In February of 2010 Saint John's Called the Rev. William E. Hamilton to be our supply priest. In April of 2012 with a New vision for the church,the vestry called upon The Rev'd Canon Winston B. Joseph to be the priest at St. Johns.
