Churches in Hawaii

One of my favorite pastimes when we travel is to view church architecture and cemeteries – and Maui didn’t disappoint!

An Episcopal church with an open-air feel (see the ‘window’ through the door:

And gorgeous stained glass:

A Catholic church:

United Methodist Church:

With its own unique stained glass windows – reflective of the climate and geography (hope you can see the palm leaves):

This church is made of coral:

We drove past many cemeteries, appreciating the tidy rows, and marveling at the color (this is winter after all):


The old cemeteries made use of lava rock to define the individual plots:


And more rock used to ‘engrave’:53 

I wished my sister could join me in a good ‘crawl’!

Happy places to celebrate our Lord!       Blessings, Peg


  1. Some awesome structures there! Beautiful churches you've photographed Peg! Thanks for sharing! 8-)

  2. I wish I could have crawled with you, too! I'm thinking of coming to visit you in March. T & B might be going to Tacoma and I thought I would tag along as far as your place. Maybe we can catch a couple of cemeteries then.
