Easter church service in Maui ..

We are staying at Marriott in Wailea. We area Catholic but are flexable with denomination.

Is there a traditional Hawaii church in Maui that would be a special service for Easter. A few years ago we were on Kaui in the north area and attended a very c ool green church?? name and it has a traditonal Hawaii choir and it was very special

and ideas? Basic catholic is fine as well.. we are willing to drive to a different area.

From what I can tell from the forum the Catholic church in Lahaina Maria Lanakila has a Tongan choir and I know they sing at the saturday 5pm mass but not sure about on Easter.

We are catholic too and plan on going to the saturday mass in june on our trip.

St. Theresa's in Kihei is about a 10 minute drive North of Wailea. I believe it is near McDonalds. We attended last summer. The mass was in English but I do remember someone performed a liturgical dance which was traditional Hawaiian. Not sure if they do that at every Mass though.

Go down to Keawalai Church in Makena. Not Catholic but will give you the Hawaiian church experience you are looking for. On Easter the services are held on the grounds of the church.

Our family attended Mass at the Sacred Hearts Mission Church in Kapalua. Beautiful little church, with a beautiful Mass. Check out details here: www.marialanakila.org/mission/index.php
