Cat Island

Our visit to Cat Island was also very nice. The remants of the old plantations are impressive, but Father Jerome's "The Hermitage" stole our hearts. After ministering on Long Island, he traveled "down under" where he served as a "bush priest". When he was finally ready to retire, he came to Cat Island and constructed "The Hermitage", a minature replica of a Fransican Monesary, atop Mt. Alverna where he lived until his death. He is buried there.
