The Star of The Sea

The Star of The Sea is an old, wooden Catholic Church that has been physically moved to avoid being disintegrated by lava flows.  The church is in Kalapana which is on the Big Island. I’ve been wanting to shoot the inside for a while and took a little time today to do just that.  A photo of the church being moved is here.  

The original Star of The Sea was built in bamboo by Saint Damien, his 1st Hawaiian ministry.  The fact that the residents took it upon themselves to save the church is wild!
