About Us

honomu-1Holy Ascension Orthodox Church is an outreach of St. Juvenaly Orthodox Mission. It is located on the Hilo side of the Big Island of Hawaiʻi in the little town of Honomū.

Our community has roots in the Russian Orthodox Church and is made up of people from a wide variety of backgrounds and walks of life. All services are primarily in English, although we also use some Greek, Slavonic and Hawaiian.

Whether you were born and raised on the island or are visiting, we welcome you to come and pray with us and experience the beauty of Orthodoxy and aloha spirit of our community.
