Our History

While we are a historical church, St. Gabriel’s is as active as ever. 
Come & see for yourself.  Check out our services in-person or online

Nestled in historic downtown Titusville is St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church, one of Florida’s treasured Carpenter Gothic churches. St. Gabriel’s has continuously served as a place of worship for the community since the first service on May 31, 1888.   

Upon entering the sanctuary, the sacred beauty of our Victorian stained-glass windows captures your attention–one of the finest collections on the east coast.   The rich beauty of the interior is matched only by the warm, welcoming community at St. Gabriel’s. 

  • Titusville is “The Gateway to Nature and Space”, and while we cherish our history, we are also immersed in a highly gifted technology community with eyes on spaceflight. Many of our congregation are involved in these endeavors.
  • Titusville’s downtown is both unique & charming small shops, restaurants, & river views
  • We are also surrounded by protected wildlife areas on the banks of the Indian River Lagoon and pristine beaches of the Canaveral National Seashore, which offer many opportunities for outdoor recreation in our mild climate.
