The Spirit of Long Island
Of the many churches on Long Island a few are well known for their beautiful architecture and longevity. Father Jerome Hawes, a Roman Catholic missionary came to Long Island many years ago and built two churches which still stand today. St. Paul's and St. Peter's Cathedrals can both be found in Clarence Town overlooking the small town of about 300 people. Then of course there is St. Mary's Anglican Church, which was originally part of a Spanish settlement on Long Island believed to be the oldest surviving Spanish church in the Bahamas. Take a look at all the churches but the three descrived are really something.
