West Moloka‘i

Hawaii's First Saint

A long-revered figure on Molokai and in Hawaii, Father Damien, who cared for the desperate patients at Kalaupapa, was elevated to sainthood in 2009. Plans call for a small museum and bookstore in his honor in Kaunakakai, and refurbishment of the three churches in the Catholic parish is currently under way. Visitors who cannot visit Kalaupapa can find information on St. Damien at the Damien Center in Kaunakakai, and may worship at Our Lady of Seven Sorrows (just west of Kaunakakai), or at St. Vincent Ferrer in Maunaloa.
