Blessed Damien honored in Hawaii

Damien Day was celebrated in Hawaii earlier this spring, a chance to honor Father Damien de Veuster, the famed priest (now beatified) who served at the leper colony of Molokai from 1873 until his death in 1889. The Hawaii Catholic Herald covered the day’s events and, in a separate piece, also tells the story of how the Father Damien Memorial Statue came to stand front of the Hawaii State Capitol after years of campaigning and disputes.
