Wordless Wednesday: St. Peter's by the Sea Catholic Church, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii,

Not really a Doors of Faith entry, just a pretty little Catholic church on the Big Island of Hawai'i, that Breathless and I saw on a Hawaii cruise with my parents and aunt in late May, 2010.  According to the North Kona Catholic Community website, the church was originally built in 1880 and moved to its present site in 1912.  The belfry and porch were added in 1938.  It is adjacent to Kahalu‘u’s Ku‘emanu Heiau, a Hawaiian surfing temple in Keauhou, just south of downtown Kailua-Kona on the western side of the Big Island.  Also known as "The Little Blue Church," it is a popular site for weddings and vow renewals.  There are only about a dozen pews inside and a lovely etched glass window overlooking the water, that is especially beautiful at sunset.
