Religious Institutions

Representing a diverse blend of cultures from around the world, Weston is host to a wide variety of religious institutions. Many congregations began meeting as small groups in living rooms, schools and strip center storefronts.  One church grew so quickly, it's members convened at the local movie theater for services each week before a house of worship could be built.  Orthodox congregations, interdenominational and non-denominational groups can all be found in or near Weston.

Perhaps thanks to its extremely diverse population, Weston residents have learned to work and live together quite comfortably. Members of the B'hai faith have organized a Unity in Diversity group which meets regularly and plans social events to help neighbors get to know and appreciate one another's differences. B'Nai Aviv and First Baptist congregations share a parking lot -- and sometimes help each other out by sharing synagogue and church when worship services overflow.



For Catholics, Westonians can be a part of the growing community at St. Katharine Drexel church, where Masses are offered in Spanish and English.[lang_en]Representing a diverse blend of cultures from around the world, Weston is host to a wide variety of religious institutions.
