We are a welcoming Catholic community called by God to live out the message of Christ in love and service to all people. Email us.

Our mission is to bring tranforming love of Christ into the lives of all we meet. Through sharing Eucharist, Prayers, Worship and Service we seek to strengthen ourselves in love and respect for one another and reach out to our broader community and world.

Our vision is to be effective "Stewards of the Gospel" we become Christ's faithful witnesses of the gospel. We offer our time, talents and treasure in service to St. Rita Parish Family and reach out to the broader communities and our world. Missionary clergy, religious and our ancestors lead us to plant good seed in the soil of faith so this work will grow and produce much fruit to the glory of God in His Kingdom.



St. Rita Catholic Church

Haiku, Maui


St. Gabriel Mission

Keanae, Maui

Nestled amongst lush vegetation and beauty, stands the Miracle Church in Wailua, Maui.
The Blessed church has been a place of refuge, prayer, peace, comfort and miracles to many who have visited and worshipped here.  Due to its' age and weather conditions, the roof is leaking, the walls are blistering, and the wood rafters and floors are termite eaten. 
We are humbly seeking monetary donations for the much needed repairs of the Miracle Church. 
If you are interested in donating, please click on this link donate now
or write a check payable to: St. Gabriel's Repair & Maintenance
and mail to St. Rita Church, 655 Haiku Rd., Haiku, Hi. 96708. 
Mahalo for your donation and God Bless.
