    Yes indeed, ep. The Gleaner claims that St. Catherine is the largest parish. However most other official sources list St. Catherine as the third largest parish.

    According to the Jamaican Ministry of FOreign Affairs St. Catherine's land area of 1192.4 sq. km. is eclipsed by the second largest parish in the country, St. Elizabeth which has an area of 1212.4 sq. km. The data for St. Ann is missing from this source.

    The Statistical Institute of Jamaica ranks the top three parishes with St. Ann (1213 sq. km.) narrowly beating St. Elizabeth (1212 sq. km) and St. Catherine trailing both of the above with 1192 sq. km.

    Other outside sources such as Reference.com also confirm this.

    Since St. Bess and St. Ann are so close to each other, I will give points to the Boardites who selected those parishes at the nation's largest. But St. Catherine is definately not the largest at this time, at least not officially.

    yes ep. hope you have no hard feelings. I believe that St. Catherine may have been taught to be the largest in school because the methods used to measure its borders change over time. With the borders of St. Bess passing through the corrugated Cockpit Country, and oth other two parishes' borders cut up and down through some rought terrain too it would be difficult to measure too. Even with today's GPS technology.

    That's why for the purposes of this, I'm going with the Statistical Institute of Jamaica results.
