St. Augustine by The Sea
Catholic Church is a parish of the Roman Catholic Church of Hawai‘i in the United States.  Saint Augustine by the Sea ministers primarily to visitors, as Waikiki contains the highest number of domestic and international visitors in the State of Hawai‘i. The parish campus is the home of the Father Damien Museum which houses several relics of Blessed Damien of Moloka‘i and related historical artifacts.
The church underwent enlargement in 1910, and 1925, essentially by cutting the building in two and moving the back to the beach. In 1920, the church acquired a right-of-way access to Kalakaua Avenue

Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew, also commonly known as St. Andrew's Cathedral, Honolulu
Completed in 1867 for the defunct Church of Hawaii, the Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew is the seat of the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii.
Kamehameha IV and Emma, his queen consort, were devout members of the Church of England led by their good friend Victoria of the United Kingdom. Inspired to build a place of worship in the Anglican tradition, Kamehameha IV commissioned the construction of what would later become the Cathedral of Saint Andrew. However, the king died on the feast day of Saint Andrew in 1863 before ground-breaking. Kamehameha V, the king's brother, took over the project and laid the cornerstone in honor of his predecessor.

The Cathedral of Saint Andrew was built in the French Gothic architectural style, shipped in several pre-fabricated pieces from England. The western facade has a window of hand-blown stained glass that reaches from the floor to the eaves, depicting the European explorers that visited the Hawaiian islands.

Kawaiaha'o Church (or Ka wai a Ha'o) is a historic Congregational church located in Downtown Honolulu.  It is one of the oldest standing Christian places of worship in Hawai'i. It is designated as a National Historic Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places.
Designed by Rev. Hiram Bingham in the New England style of the Hawaiian missionaries, it was constructed between 1836 and 1842 of some 14,000 thousand-pound slabs of coral rock harvested from off the southern shore of O'ahu. It rivaled the concurrent construction of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace for the Roman Catholic Apostolic Vicariate of the Hawaiian Islands.
The upper gallery of the church is adorned with the portraits of the royal families. Lunalilo, who preferred to be buried in a church cemetery rather than the Royal Mausoleum, is buried in the courtyard.

The Co-Cathedral of Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus is a cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church and its Diocese of Honolulu. Located in the outskirts of downtown Honolulu, Hawaii, it has a larger area that the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace. It was named in honor of the Saint Theresa of Lisieux.
The original church parish was established in 1931 by Msgr. Stephen Alencastre, Vicar Apostolic of the Hawaiian Islands. Construction was completed only a year later, in September 1932. Reflecting the exponential growth of Catholicism in the immediate community, then pastor and diocesan vicar general Msgr. Benedict Vierra led a major fundraising effort to replace the church's wooden structure, showing signs of deterioration in 1956. Vierra's efforts were successful and the renovated church was dedicated on August 15, 1963.

The Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace — also known by its original French name Cathédrale de Notre Dame de la Paix, its Portuguese variant Catedral de Nossa Senhora da Paz and its Hawaiian derivative Malia o ka Malu Hale Pule Nui — is the Mother Church of the Diocese of Honolulu and houses the cathedra of the Bishop of Honolulu in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The Cathedral was built during the Hawai‘i's missionary era and served as the mother church of the Vicariate Apostolic of the Hawaiian Islands. It was dedicated by Msgr. Maigret on August 15, 1843 under the title of Our Lady of Peace. It holds the distinction of being the oldest cathedral in continuous use in the United States as well as the church in which Blessed Damien of Moloka‘i was ordained to the presbyter ate on May 21, 1864. For these reasons, the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
