I thought this might be a nice time of the year to post some photos I had taken on the Big Island of Hawaii. This is known as the Painted Church. It’s official name is St. Benedict’s.
The church was erected in 1899 by Father John Velghe of Belgium. With house paint on wood he painted the inside of the church with scenes from the bible. He used these to help teach his congregation of Hawaiians by referring to these paintings.
If you would like to read more on this church here is the site where you will find back ground, history, and directions how to find this out-of-the-way little church.
