Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We received a warm greeting as we entered.

    The Our Father was done hula style. On the altar were two ladies who instructed us by example on how to participate with this lovely tradition.

    Excellent Priest/Mass/community.

    Times for Mass and other services are on their website. The church is on the main highway but slightly set back, smaller sign. Plenty of parking.

    After passing through Hawaii Volcanic National Park, we visited Naalehu, the southernmost town and church in the United States. Naalehu (Naalehu means "the volcanic ashes" in Hawaiian, and is home to one of several ground communication stations operated by Bigelow Aerospace that is used to communicate with its space modules in orbit. The Naalehu united Methodist church was closed when we went to visit it, but is a very pretty white building with a pointed spire, set in manicured grounds.

    TIP: Check out the Shaka across the street.

    I have never met a more warm and welcoming congregation. Most are expats from the continental US. After the service they insisted I stay for a huge buffet, which they tell me they prepare every Sunday.

    This is a great little church. Age appropriate small groups/Bible studies/Sunday school begin at 9:00 am, a lively worship service begins at 10:15 am followed by refreshments.

    Kona United Methodist Church (KUMC) is a wonderful, friendly church with services at 8:30 AM on Sundays. The church is open on both the mountain side and the ocean side, and has a splendid view of the Pacific Ocean. It is an unusually friendly church, and visitors are made very welcome. There is plenty of parking, and the location is five minutes away from downtown Kailua-Kona. After church, there is hospitality with coffee, sweet snacks, and plenty of friendly conversation. KUMC is a prayerful church, and is a wonderful place to worship the Lord in a beautiful setting.

    The original St. Benedict Roman Catholic Church was built in 1842 in Kapalelua and moved to its present location around 1880, and the home church of native Hawaiians. Today’s parishioners are part Hawaiian and Filipino. A Belgian priest named Father John Velghe was assigned to the parish in 1899 and soon realized most of the Hawaiians could not read or write. To remedy this, he used house paint on the wood and created depictions from the Bible and lives of the saints. On the grounds are a cemetery, Stations of the Cross, and a statue of the Pieta. The church is located on Painted Church Road in Kona.

    The church, built in 1926, in the Late Gothic Revival style, characterized by Gothic-Revival arched openings and a pair of towers flanking a centered projecting enclosed porch all of which is covered with a green corrugated metal roof.
    The interior is a large central, high vaulted ceiling and vaulted side aisles, posts serve as nave piers and support the Gothic archways forming two outside aisles. On the back of the apse is a Gothic arched stained-glass window depicting the crucifixion. Flanking the chancel are statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus. The choir loft is on a mezzanine over the entrance to the nave.
    To the mauka side of the entrance to the Nave is a donation box, along with crucifix’ for sale for donations.
    On the mauka side of the main parking lot is a small grotto built of rock that houses a statue of the Virgin Mary.

    Local Hawaiians in Waimea gather every Sunday to worship and sing in their native language. Everyone is welcomed to attend the service at 9 am on Sunday. The original church was destroyed and replaced in 1865 and then the new one was destroyed in a 1992 hurricane. The current church has a gabled roof, a steeple and made of wood. The interior is made of wood. According to the history of the church, there was a dispute and resulted in the formation of this Hawaiian church.
