Old Churches

Savannah has lots of old churches.
When the colonie of Georgia was founded Catholics weren't allowed because Spain was the enemy and they were afraid that a Catholic would be a spy.
Catholic Cathedral founded in 1873.  
 When they finally let the Catholics in it was quite a population of Irish Catholics. Savannah has quite the St. Patricks day celebration. In fact it is a holiday celebrated by the whole town. Schools are event closed that day.
