Built by Christian missionaries in the 1830s and 1840s, this church was always frequented by Hawaiian royalty. The handsome gray edifice, listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings, was constructed of 14,000 coral blocks. The upper gallery houses a collection of portraits of Hawaiian monarchs. Traditional Hawaiian-language services are held here every Sunday. The pews at the rear are still reserved for descendants of Hawaii's royalty. Call for reservations.
Unfortunately for you, kind visitors and believers of the Lord, this church is consumed with expansion for the visitor industry and the profit levels they are anticipating.
What you donʻt know, nor will this ʻchurchʻ tell you is that they are aggressively digging up Hawaiian burials to get them out-of-the-way for the expansions.
This goes against everything ingrained in me since childhood, as a believer in Christ Almighty.
If you are able to do an important and spiritual deed, as a tourist, please let your shock and repulsion be known to the church that these acts are sacrilegious and unacceptable.
Remember, they are committing these atrocities for you, when you visit, to have a bigger and more luxurious church to attend. I certainly would not want my family dug up and put in storage containers...thatʻs is not right, so why should it be any different for Hawaiians? It should not but the church is looking at the bottom line. The congregation may have to do a reverse sermonizing to these church administrators.
Every time we go to Waikiki, we make it a point to go on Sunday morning to the services at Kawaiaho Church. It is done partly in Hawaiian and partly in English. The organ music and choir are lovely. The locals who go there are extremely friendly. The sermons are inspirational. It's always an experience we look forward to as we plan our trip.
