About the Cayman Islands:
Located in the Caribbean, the principal Island is Grand Cayman, along with the much smaller islands of Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.
The Cayman Islands are an increasingly popular travel destination.....both for those arriving by air and for cruise lines. As a result, improvements are being made to accommodate the number of visitors.
For Grand Cayman, the airport, is undergoing a new multi-year development will include expansion of the arrivals and departure areas and will more than double the airport’s current capacity, increasing its footprint from 77,000 to 207,000 square feet. The entire project is expected to take three years to complete, according to Cayman Islands Airport Authority officials. The new building will be constructed in four phases, allowing the airport to remain in operation throughout the project.
Many airlines serve the Caymans, including Cayman Airways.
For cruises, up until now, cruise ships have had to anchor offshore (see map) and then passengers ferried to shore by tender. Plans are under consideration to enlarge the cruise port; however, due to environmental concerns there has been no firm commitment as of now.
The Churches in the Cayman Islands are part of the Diocese of Detroit, Michigan in the U.S.A.
On Grand Cayman, Saint Ignatius Catholic Church is close to both the airport and the cruise port. Another Catholic Church is Christ the Redeemer in West Bay. Both have Sunday Masses. On Cayman Brac, you will find Stella Maris Catholic Church. They do not have a priest in residence, so the Sunday service at 11:00 a.m. may be a communion service or, if a priest is available, a Mass.
