The Painted Church

We enjoyed this pretty little church and went there twice. Father John Berchmans Veighe painted elaborate scenes from the bible in the interior of this Gothic style structure, formerly known as St. Benedict's Church. During his ministry, around 1900, the Belgian Father used these illustrations to explain Christianity to the Hawaiians who could neither read nor write.
