We drove out to Kula to attend the Saturday evening mass. What a great experience. Very friendly parish. We enjoyed the singing and loved the small yet ornate church. Lovely gift shop was a nice place to visit after mass. Adjoining cemetery is beautiful too.

It is worth visiting this little jewel built in 1895 by Portuguese immigrants from Madeira and the Azores. The drive to the church in upcountry Maui is beautiful and so is the view from the church. It is inspirational to folks of all beliefs.
