Hundreds of people attended services at the cathedral in central Maui that is also being used as a shelter.
The cathedral's chapel in the devastated historic town of Lahaina was among the many buildings lost in the fires. Kawi Keahi, pastor of the church's Lahaina chapel, on Sunday said his faith remained strong as he and other islanders struggle with the brutal aftermath of the disaster, which has claimed at least 93 lives.
"In circumstances like this, your faith gets affected a little. But when you hear messages like this[ at Sunday's service] , it's like somebody pouring more faith into that jug, you know, and then it just builds me up. So I feel, you know, just good, full of faith,” said Keahi, whose house also burned down.
Days after the inferno destroyed much of Lahaina on Tuesday and Wednesday, crews of firefighters were still battling flare-ups, and cadaver dogs were sifting through the town's charred ruins in search of victims.
Hundreds of people were still missing, though a precise count remained unclear.
