About The Archdiocese of Miami

Since its inception in 1958, the Archdiocese of Miami has served the people of South Florida by building community through service. From its social service organizations to its resettlement centers and child and adult day care centers, the Archdiocese has been a catalyst for social change and a center of hope for our brothers and sisters in need. Its 125 parishes and missions, 78 schools and countless ministries strive to serve all who seek their help, and advocate daily for the ongoing needs of our community.

The Marian Center School and Services provides educational, residential, clinical, vocational and recreational services to over 150 students and adults with developmental disabilities ranging in age from birth through middle adulthood. The Leadership Learning Center at St. John Bosco Church, a three-year-old after-school program, is a model that the Archdiocese hopes to duplicate in other venues throughout South Florida. It not only stresses academics, but there is a social aspect in everything they do. The goal is to produce leaders who will then return to the community and give back.
