Catholic services in bright church along Alii drive in Kailua-Kona. Community welcomes locals and visitors. Sunday service was upbeat and enjoyable. Air conditioning helps to enjoy the spirit.

Visited here whilst on Kona. Beautiful church - woodwork in the pews and decorations including mosaics of St Damien of Molokai. Good range of mass times as well and very welcoming to visitors!

Such a beautiful church. I admired it and wished I would’ve gone inside. We parked right by it on a Sunday afternoon and saw parishioners singing inside.

We were so thrilled to visit this beautiful church! The parishioners were gracious and welcoming. All the people who worship here are very friendly. So welcoming! St. Michael the Archangel Church will always have a special place in my memories. I’ll always remember this Church.

We attended this church on Pentecost. The mass was beautiful and the people were very warm and welcoming. The church is absolutely gorgeous. I'm so happy that we were able to celebrate Pentecost in this church.

I walked there with my husband and friends. A beautiful church, with Polynesian carvings. Masses were Sunday at 7 a.m., 9 a.m. & 4:00 p.m. with the Our Father prayed in Hawaiian. Visitors received pretty handmade Leis, fashioned of pull tabs & ribbon.
