Academy of the Sacred Hearts

King Kamehameha III donated land for the first permanent Catholic Church; it was named the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace (it’s the oldest Roman Catholic Cathedral in continuous use in the US.)

On May 4, 1859 the Sisters of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament arrived at Honolulu; shortly after, they opened the Sacred Hearts Convent.  In 1909, a Catholic secondary school for women was started in Kaimuki, Academy of the Sacred Hearts.
