Catholic Church in Micronesia: Marshalls (11411 words)
The Likiep church was used as a copra warehouse and the Japanese converted the church on Jaluit into a radio station.
But Likiep offered several uncontestable advantages at that early date: besides its relatively large number of Catholics and the undamaged state of its old mission buildings, Likiep was close to Kwajalein, the main American base and the hub of air transportation in and out of the Marshalls.
On Likiep the priests found a solid group of co-workers: Alphonse Capelle, the spokesman of the Catholic community; Maggie Capelle, for years the island sacristan and catechism teacher for the children; and Cecilia DeBrum, who was then and in future years one of the most tireless supporters of the church.
