dropped in last time I was there. A peaceful sanctuary by the Waikiki shoreline, but hidden behind some awful, garish shops!

Our favorite Catholic church by waikiki beach. Tip: 1. Checkout the schedule for the Pacific islander service. Very interesting to experience. 2. Come early before mass for parking. Otherwise, it's a nice pleasant walk to church.

We were fortunate to have been in Hawaii during Holy Week and enjoyed our time sharing the Easter Triduum with the Priests and parishioners of St Augustine. The Church is quite large and the stained glass windows are really beautiful. The Triduum services were enhanced by the music Ministry who made a good selection of music to reflect the events...

Great church to visit during your stay. The mass was very nice and took about 65 minutes. Very nice church and the windows are very sharp.

From the involvement of the people, the beauty of the singing by the choir the setting of such a beautiful church and the not too long and meaningful sermons from the two priests. this has happened on our various visits to this Hawaiian Church

Mass in Hawaii. Need I say more? Beautiful church, welcoming community, and lovely locale. In walking distance from everything. Nice walk along the beach to and from Mass, even if the weather was a bit damp.
