90 in 90, Siloama Church, Kalaupapa, Molokai, Day 44

Established in 1866. In the trees just down the road, Saint Philomena originally built by St. Damien (Joseph De Veuster) in Kalawao on the windward side of the Kalaupapa peninsula. The two churches from the leprosy (Hansens's disease) settlement are due entirely to the dedication of the people who have quietly preserved them over the years. Just beyond Kalawao is a fantastic view of the dramatic sea cliffs of backside Molokai.
