Greater St. Paul in Coconut Grove gears up for 118th Anniversary

One of the oldest historical Black churches in Miami is preparing to celebrate its 118th birthday. The Greater St. Paul A.M.E. Church is a beacon of hope and acceptance for the West Coconut Grove community. Founded on April 27, 1896 by Jeremiah H. Butler, the church was originally built to serve a community of 300 residents and Bahamian settlers.
