Neighborhood: Cat Island
Overview

Located just east of New Bight Village, this site is home to an array of holy sculptures and the tomb of well-known Catholic missionary Father Jerome. Jerome devoted his life to spreading the word of the church. His journey ended here, but before his death he managed to construct a number of incredible works. He carved the 14 Stations of the Cross, chronicling the life of Christ. Some of his other handiwork includes steps to the summit of the mountain, a small chapel and a bell tower. Aside from the religous monuments on the grounds, the 206-foot elevation of the area affords panoramic views of Cat Island, the Caribbean and the Atlantic.
