Hawaii’s first saint touched her father’s life

Emma Kamahana Dickerson of Pennsylvania recently took three of her daughters and a granddaughter to Hawaii in anticipation of the canonization of Father Damien de Veuster, who will become the first Hawaiian saint Oct. 11.

Dickerson, 85, has a unique tie to Father Damien. Her father knew him.

There is a great story about this in the Hawaii Catholic Herald, newspaper of the Diocese of Honolulu.
