Eillllce to Be Altered Under Super
lsloii of Father Weuilellu.
An old landmark of Hilo will soon
undergo nu nltcrntiou which is only nil
other evidence of the growth nud ad
vancement of the town. Father
Wcndellu of St. Joseph's Catholic
Church has determined upon the en
largctucnt nnd remodelling of that house
of worship. The membership has in
creased to nenrly double the number
when the church was first erected in i860.
The entire building is to be lowered to
the level of the stone wall surrounding
the church grounds, nud the chamber ex
tended ten feel ou either side. The two
towers will be removed to cither side of
the present building In Hue with the
doorway of the auditorium, permitting of
a double front entrance nud vestibule nnd
a more imposing faende. In place of the
present rounded church towers, two mod
ern pointed spires with dormer windows
will be erected ou cither side of the
church entrance. Tri roof will be ex
tended over the addit, 111s to be added to
cither side of the present structure nud

slate roof, which hns been found loo

The work of reconstruction will be
under the immediate supervision of
Father Wendeliu, who is in charge of
the Catholic Mission in Hilo. He has
had much experience iu designing nud
has an eye for the beautiful in architec
ture hs well ns its practicability. When
assigned to duty nt the leper settlement
ou Molokai iu 1 900, he drew the plans
aud personally supervised the construc
tion of the St. Francis Church nt Kalau
papa. This is regarded as one of the
most ornate mid chaste specimens of
church architecture iu the islands, being
designed in the shnpc of n cross.
Iu the remodeling of St. Joseph Church,
Fnther Wendeliu will be ably assisted
by brothers Silvmius and Sylvester from
the Honolulu mission , who are practical
carpenters and builders. The funds for
the remodeling of the church were se
cured from private subscriptions and a
part of the proceeds of the luau and fair
given at the Hilo Armory a short time
ago by the Catholic Ladies Aid Society.
The present church building was built
July 9, 1S60. It has long been one of the
landmarks to sailing vessels aud navi
gators at sea, aud today is one of the
fixed range sites marking the entrance of
Hilo harbor. Ground was first broken
on June 9, i860, and few of the katna
alnas now living recall the event. The
ground was consecrated aud the corner
stone laid June 18, i860, in a simple cere
mony to which the assembled congrega
tion and a few invited guests were pres
ent. Judge G. W. A. Ilapai is the only
nnnic of a person now living who attend
ed the exercises. The church was built
by three Brothers, Zcnou, Juste aud
Aquiled, under the supervision of Father
Charles Pougot, lovingly known ns
Father Chnrley. The building was com
pleted aud solemnly dedicated ou July
9, 1861, when the sacrament of baptism
was administered to forty catechumens.
From 250 to 300 persons were confirmed
by Rt. Rev, Monselgnor Maigret, Bisho
of Hawaii. Father Celestiue of Kail
assisted aud Fathers Ediuoud nud Lcuore
of Mnui with their pupils came to wit
ness the ceremony. The dedicatory
exercises wrre followed by a dinner in
which Messrs. Spencer, Coney, Hitch
