Mount Loretto in Staten Island

The church is called Saint Joachim and Anne. The grounds are known as Mount Loretto, which was an orphanage founded by Father John Christopher Drumgoole in 1871. 

When I was driving out of the compound, I decided to jump out of the car and photograph a flock of Canadian Geese on the lawn. See at the bottom.

I chased the geese, yelling like a nut, but the bastards all ran away. I figured they’d fly and I would get some nice pics.

On the way back to the car I realized I had just ran though a minefield of goose crap. Suffice to say my sneakers went in the trunk.

    Was in the mount from 1951 to 1956. Was a barno with ronnie viel, jimmy cunningham, and george viel. Had it not been for the mount, i don’t know where i would of ended up. It prepared me for the united states marines; thank god for Fr. Kenny and Fr Victor Pavis.
