Maui Hawaii: A Visit to Honulua Bay and Lahaina

We drove to Honulua Bay, a famous surfing place, where one can catch the perfect wave in the winter. We also visited the historic town of Lahaina, which used to be a whaling port.  In Lahaina, I was thrilled to visit the Maria Lanakila Catholic Church,, which had been featured in one of the books I edited,  Magnificat: Mama Mary's Pilgrim Sites.

One of the contributors to the anthology, Millicent Dypiangco, wrote an article, "At Maria Lanakila, Our Prayers were Heard and Answered," about yearning for a child and how her prayers to Our Lady of Maria Lanakila in Lahaina, Maui were answered with the birth of her daughter, Miranda.

I felt privileged to have visited this Marian site. It's bright and airy inside. A mosaic of Saint Damien of  the leper colony Molokai graces a back wall.

I'm sharing pictures taken at the bay, which has the most remarkable setting.  One parks along the roadside, walks through a forest, and pops out into the wondrous bay.

When in Maui, one should visit the different beaches and hiking trails to fully appreciate what this island offers.
