Waiola Church & Waiola Cemetery
When it was built in the first half of the 19th Century, this church was called the Waine'e. After 100 years of being battered by natural disasters and native uprisings, it was rebuilt and renamed Waiola, which means 'Water of Life'. Next to it lies the Waiola (or Waine'e) Graveyard. Many important figures from the early days of Hawaiian colonization are buried here, the famous next to the unknown, and perhaps more importantly, the Hawaiian next to the Western. Both sites figure heavily into Maui's history.
Kahu Schmidt and staff were awesome when it came to my special day. It was hot but the church was in perfect order when we arrived. And Kahu Schmidt was very real when it came to our pre-marital counsel session. I am very happy that we had choosen Waiola Church to accomodate for our wedding. It was very traditional and the picture setting in front of the church was very appropriate for our large wedding party.
A beautiful setting in old Lahaina town. The services are in Hawaiian and English and the members are friendly and helpful.
The graveyard next door is rich in history, and has a very peacful serene about it.
