Catholic Family Narrowly Escapes Hawaii Wildfires: ‘We Did a Lot of Praying’

The Cardenas family, of Sacramento, California, poses outside Maria Lanakila Catholic Church in Lahaina, Hawaii.

The Cardenas family had attended Mass a few days before the start of the fire in Lahaina at the historic Maria Lanakila Catholic Church, which was miraculously spared any serious damage. Safe back at home but shaken, the family’s thoughts and prayers are with the people of the island they love so much.
