Father Damien


Belgian Roman Catholic priest who gave his life to the care of lepers in a colony at Molokai, HI. He first moved to Hawaii as a residential priest but because of the difficulty in getting doctors, began to help. In December 1884 he realised that he himself had contracted leprosy. He died on 15 April 1889.

Father Damien was beatified on 4 June 1995 by Pope John Paul II, a preliminary step toward sainthood as declared by the Church. He was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on 11 October 2009.
