Father Damien or Saint Damien of Molokai, Saint Damien de Veuster (January 3, 1840 – April 15, 1889), born Jozef De Veuster, was a Roman Catholic priest. He won recognition for his ministry in the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi to people with leprosy, who had been placed under a government-sanctioned medical quarantine on the island of Molokaʻi.
He eventually contracted and died of the disease, resulting in his characterization as a “martyr of charity”. He was the 10th person recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church to have lived, worked, and/or died in what is now the United States.
