Our services are held at the pie-shaped piece of land at the intersection of Hwy 190 (Palani Rd) and 180 (Mamalohoa Hwy). We meet in the low-profile building on the site—it doesn’t look like a typical church.

From the Queen K. intersection, travel up Palani Rd. 4.5 miles. Make a right turn onto Mamalahoa Hwy. (you’ll see a sign that says, “To Route 180″). Go about 100 yards, and turn into the first driveway on your right.

From the airport access road, make a right on Queen K highway. Travel .5 mile, make your first left on Ka’iminani, travel uphill 4 miles. At the top of the road, make a right turn onto Hwy 190 (Palani Rd), travel 2 miles. Make a left onto Hwy 180 (Mamalohoa Hwy.) Go about 100 yards, and turn into the first driveway on your right.
Schedule of Services

St. Juvenaly Orthodox Mission was founded in 2004 as “The Orthodox Christian Mission in Kona.” As the only Orthodox Church on the Big Island of Hawai’i, and one of three Orthodox churches within about 2500 miles, we are blessed with a diverse and distributed congregation.
Whether you’re on the Big Island for a quick visit, have decided to put down roots here, or were born and raised in the Islands, we welcome you to come and pray with us and experience the beauty of Orthodoxy and aloha spirit of our community.
