“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to bring Glad Tidings to the poor. He has sent me to bring liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord. “ - Luke 4: 18-19
The Mission of St. Michael the Archangel was founded July 5, 1840 with the present Church having been completed in 1850. Our parishioners are a rich mosaic of many cultures and customs and are happy to welcome people of all backgrounds and faiths to our worshipping community.
Today, the mission has grown into the North Kona Catholic Community, which includes St. Michael the Archangel Church in Kailua-Kona, Immaculate Conception Church in Holualoa, St. Paul's Church in Honalo, St. Peter's Church in Keauhou and Holy Rosary Church in Kalaoa. NKCC serves over 1,000 parishioners and a steady stream of visitors, many who return year after year.
As you browse our website, we hope that you will discover a bit about our parish. Above all, we hope that you will visit us, join in our worship of God, and walk with us as we strive to grow in the likeness of the risen Christ.
