Cycling around Hilo, I couldn't resist popping in the open door to get a feel for the local church architecture. This is a lovely simple building and testament to the natural ventilation prowess of the Hawaiian designers of old. On a muggy hot day, it was lovely and cool inside this very pretty church.
Lots of mass times to choose from. Lovely people in the parish. Friendly priests.They also have mass times available in their Catholic School on Holy Days.
It was a wonderful experience attending mass here. The congregation was so friendly and made visitors feel welcome! Beautiful church and beautiful people!
Story and paintings were very interesting. Walk thru cemetary was also interesting. Not easy to find. Be patient and enjoy the local scenery. There's a private garden open for a fee in the area that's quite impressive as well, but sadly don't have the name. I'm sure someone at the church will have it. Please support the upkeep of the... 更多
Went to the 9:00 mass and found the choir to be outstanding, the preaching to be inspiring, and the Mass to be reverent uplifting. The church is not a tourist attraction, but a great sanctuary for those who believe.

Sadly, my first visit here was for a funeral. It is a beautiful church. Please take a moment to step inside if possible while a service isn't being held. Visit in conjunction with a trip to the Lyman Museum.
The Catholic church in Big Bear is beautiful inside and out. And they welcome visitors, since Big Bear is a tourist town. The priest and everyone is very friendly. The Easter mass was spiritual and just what I hoped for. What was not so great was their Easter Egg Hunt, great idea but way to many kids , and very... 更多
We have attended mass at St. Joseph half a dozen times, and the congregation is always friendly and inviting. It is a traditional Catholic mass, however, it is much more fun and upbeat and lively than my home church. I never get sleepy! We find ourselves singing the songs throughout the days that follow. We love coming here.
