Southeast Florida, Diocese of

The 1969 General Convention voted to divide the Diocese of South Florida into three dioceses. One of the three dioceses had the temporary name of the East Coast Diocese of Florida, but at the primary convention at Holy Trinity Church, West Palm Beach, Oct. 8, 1969, the name was changed to the Diocese of Southeast Florida. It includes five counties: Briarwood, Dade, Martin, Monroe, Palm Beach, and one parish in Hendry County. On Mar. 29, 1970, Trinity Church, Miami, was set apart as Trinity Cathedral.
