St. Damien Catholic Church, Molokai
Today on the “topside” of Molokai, the Saint Damien Catholic Parish, lives as “ohana” (family) serving God, serving each other and the greater world community. We endeavor in our own small ways, in our daily lives, to live Jesus’ gospel message, that we are each called to build the kingdom of God here on earth. We do that in our daily work, in our extension of friendship and charity to those in need. Our goal and mission is, like Father Damien, to give without counting the cost, without expectation of thanks, and without judgment of those we serve.
One of the primary missions of the parish is to serve as a resource to visitors and pilgrims to Molokai who come to learn the Father Damien story. In 2011, after 16 years of planning, praying and fundraising, the parish completed the construction of and dedicated to God the new Saint Damien of Molokai Church. The new Saint Damien Church stands in the main town of Kaunakakai, in the center of Molokai and serves as the parish’s primary worship space and as a gathering place for visitors and pilgrims who come to learn the Father Damien story.
