Maria Lanakila Catholic Church




Located in downtown Lahaina on the island of Maui, the Maria Lanakila Catholic Church was established in 1846. The stone structure which stands today was completed in 1873 and offers and pristine and pious setting for your nuptials. Grand white pillars punctuate the space and light pours in from a second floor clerestory as you make your way to the magnificent altar. As you meet your groom and exchange eternal vows, the congregation filled with loved ones and family members look on adoringly from rows of rich wooden benches. Emerge from the church to the sound of traditional toiling wedding bells and continue on to the reception of your choice. Maria Lanakila’s breathtaking and classical architecture sets the tone for a Catholic ceremony and a lifetime of love and happiness.
