Church of St. Gaetan
The Church of St. Gaetan is located in the Old Town of Cres, near the city market. Holy Gaetano Errico was an Italian priest, born at the end of the 18th century in Naples. At age of 16 he went to study in the Archbishop’s seminary in his hometown. In 1815, he was ordained a priest, and in 1819 he began working as a teacher in the local school. He took care of the sick and prisoners, and lived very modestly. After the apparition of St. Altronz, he built the church of Our Lady of Sorrows and founded the Congregation of the Missionaries of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, whose missionaries are still active in Asia, Africa, Europe and America. Pope John Paul II beatified Gaetano in 2002, and Pope Benedict XVI declared him a saint in 2008.
