St Michael's Parish
Located within walking distance of Coco Reef, Elbow Beach and Coral Beach Hotels, St. Michael’s Church was built in 1958 with the first Mass being celebrated on Christmas Day of that year. The parish hall was completed in the Spring of 1961. At about the same time, the adjoining property, then known as “Beau Sejour,” was purchased. The house on the property serves as the Rectory. When the Diocese of Hamilton in Bermuda was established, St. Michael’s Mission became a Parish Church. The Church’s structural design features a three-peaked façade and belfry in honour of the Holy Trinity. The body of the Church takes the form of a Tau or T Cross, with congregational pews arranged on three sides of the main Altar. Inside the Church, the design is simple with cool clean lines highlighted by a Bermuda Cedar Altar and decorative stained glass window.
