This is an absolutely beautiful iteration of a modern Catholic church.
The architecture is lovely. The interior is simpler looking than you might expect for this beautiful neighborhood.
Epiphany is one of the most impressive church buildings in this city in my opinion. However, what makes this a bit different than most of the other churches that were reviewed because of their beauty or appearance is that Epiphany isn't old and loaded with statues and ornamental architecture, but it's relatively new (built in 2001) and simpler-looking. From the exterior, this church looks like a large, relatively boxy stone and glass structure. However, when you're inside the 1,200 seat sanctuary, there are wooden slats that form a huge arch over the congregation, making it feel almost like a gothic-style building inside. The church is built in the form of a cross (basilica-style) so there is seating in front of and to both sides of the altar. The crown jewel is a 61 rank pipe organ which was designed and constructed by the Ruffatti organ company of Italy (they also built the pipe organ for Robert Schuller's "Crystal Cathedral" that you may have seen on TV). Much time and effort was spent to ensure that this church is nearly acoustically perfect, and that the organ, sound systems and the structure itself are all integrated.
The Archdiocese of Miami, also vigilant about the seriousness of entering into a lifelong union, has issued special regulations regarding marriage between minors and up to nineteen (19) years of age. Epiphany supports and observes this regulation.Require a ten to twelve month period prior to the wedding.
