It's worth the 11 mile drive to stand in this church build by St Damian's own hands. There is a simple beauty in the church. It was open for a visit. Outside the church is the iconic statue of the Saint.

We were alone visiting this little church built by St. Damien when he was on Molokai around 1850. Seats about 20 people at the most. Sorry there are no scheduled masses here.

Small church. Not much to see. Stop 5 minutes to take a picture and go to see others attractions in the island. It is a historic place.

Wonderful place to experience some of the history of Molokai. We just happened upon this place, and found it a sweet respite.
