David Malo’s Church

Church in Kihei

Philosopher David Malo, who built this church in 1852, was the first Hawaiian ordained to the Christian ministry. He was also co-author of Hawaii’s first constitution and an early spokesperson for Hawaiian rights. While most of Malo’s original church has been dismantled, a 3ft-high section of the wall still stands beside a palm grove. Pews are lined up inside the stone walls. It’s really quite beautiful.

Outdoor services are held at 9am on Sunday by Trinity Episcopal Church By-the-Sea. All are welcome.
