Beautiful tribute to St Benedict, this quaint little Catholic church is painted in beautiful island style artwork and also has a statue of Father Damien and the vision of St. Bernadette. Definitely worth going to see.

The interior of the church is beautiful, amazing craftsmanship. However I have a feeling it would be more impactful to attend a service rather than simply stopping in for a visit.

Worth a stop to see the little church and garden high up the hill. Only stopped for 15 minutes but worth a look.

The church is very small, but beautiful and unique. It's a little off the beaten path, but pretty easy to find. It's worth taking a few minutes to find it and check it out.

This is an amazingly simple church which celebrates its' past. Paintings still stand and are over 100 years old. Not the Sistine Chapel but still an expressive peek into old Hawaii. Less than an hour but the colors stay in your mind for days.
