St. Peter's Catholic Church Postcard

St. Peter's Catholic Church (Little Blue Church), just outside Kona Town near Magic Sands Beach, was built in 1889 on the site of an ancient Hawaiian heiau, or temple of the ancient Hawaiian religion.

There are only 12 pews and a pulpet, and a beautiful etched glass window. If you sit in one of the pews, you can visually line up the horizon depicted in the stained glass image of the Sea of Galilee with the real Pacific horizon beyond the church. This church is made of clapboard with a corregated tin roof.
