The Saint Anne Roman Catholic Chapel was built in 1740 using whale oil plaster and local rocks. Inside the chapel are ancient images of Saint Anne. The Chapel celebrates the feast of Saint Anne every July 26 with fireworks and a mass. Mary Undoer of Knots Roman Catholic Chapel was built in 2001 and blessed by Pope John Paul II. It is fondly referred to as the “The Small Great Work of Art” because nine local artists worked with volunteers to build the church.
