Sacred Hearts Catholic Church

-A A +A
1931, Father Ildephonse Heibges. 815 Frasier Ave.

Sited to catch the prevailing trade winds, this shiplap-sided church parallels the street. The design incorporates a Palladian window in each gable end, paired casement windows with fanlights, and a rear, street-side corner bell tower. The modest interior is canec-clad and includes a small, second-floor choir loft above the entrance. Windows are glazed with starburst-patterned obscure glass, a rarity in today's Hawaii.
