Maria Lanakila Catholic Church reviews
Beautiful Catholic church and great liturgy! We visited from the mainland, the people are very welcoming and full of the Holy Spirit. No air conditioning, so will get sweaty, but think of it as penance, and be grateful. There is a paid parking lot next door that is free during Mass. Today the Knights of Columbus had malasadas for sale, and my kids gobbled them up. Very close to town shopping, restaurants, etc.
Beautiful quaint traditional catholic church. The people were very kind and inviting.
