The Painted Church was a charming St. Benedict’s church. The inside was painted by a Belgium priest in 1920's. He told Bible stories in pictures on the side walls and painted the ceiling to look vaulted. I took pictures of the inside but I feel they don’t really do justice to the feelings of peace and serentiy of this little church…

The yard had a graveyard with well kept graves and beautiful flowers growing around it. There was a beautiful statue of St Mary with hundreds of shell Leis around her neck. As we walked to the car, Ray spotted a statue up the hill. We walked up the path (next to the gravel road). On each side of the path were crude wooden crosses with things written on them regarding Christ when he was carrying the cross….. The path ended at a crude wooden cross with a wonderful life size recreation of the Pieta (Michelangelo’s masterpiece) This beautiful spot was inspiring.
