Hawaii’s First Canonized Saint, Father Damien, Was One Of The Islands’ Most Influential People
Whether you’ve called our beautiful islands home for your entire life, recently made the move to the Aloha State, or perhaps are simply dreaming of the day you’ll finally fly into Hawaii, there are countless fascinating places and people that make the Hawaiian Islands so unique. And while we’ve featured many of the islands’ most famous places, it is perhaps the people who live here that have shaped the islands even more than our volcanic past. One of those influential people is none other than Father Damien, and we can’t wait to share his life and legacy with you.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
