Honoring a saint

January 14, 2012
The Maui News
Pookela Glasco-Kamauoha helps Anthony Eleno place a lei around the neck of a statue depicting St. Damien during an unveiling Friday at Damien Memorial School in Honolulu. St. Damien, Hawaii’s patron saint, is best known for caring for leprosy patients exiled to the Kalaupapa settlement in the mid-1800s. He contracted leprosy 12 years after he arrived and died of the disease four years later.
