Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great local Catholic Church with Sunday Mass services to suit everyone. Very welcoming congregation. Kids went off to Sunday School and reported back as to what they had learnt too. Fantastic singing. Windows and doors were open for great ventilation.

Such a beautiful service, a definite MUST if you are visiting. Attended the English service at 10:30AM, the singing was so lovely and the homily was refreshing. Not very crowded as most of the congregation attend the earlier Maori service. Don't need to worry too much about dress code, definitely wear something more modest, but everyone is dressed pretty casually.

Loved the stained glass windows. A nice wide open church with natural air conditioning aided by a few fans which were not operating. But well worth going inside

We arrived on the island on a Sunday but, unfortunately too late to attend the service. This is a beautiful island church with wood carvings and beautiful statues. There is easy access and a short walk from the cruise ship tender dock.

Visit the local Sunday mass, you will be welcome and being part of a splendid choir. Take the English mass to be able to join the singing, texts are beamed to the wall. The celebration is enthusiastic and touching. The building, the seat of the Cook bishop, is island style, airy and open and demonstrates the attitude of the followers.

Beautiful experience. The singing was divine. Although it was a Maori service, much was in English so a nice mix. Bus dropped us right across the road. As only clockwise buses on Sunday we had to ride around the Island to get home but who cares. Walking distance from church to open cafes also.

Beautiful mass and tributes afterwards for Bishop O'Connell from the congregation. Thank you for the amazing food and hospitality you showed to your visitors.

I am always happy to visit any catholic church in another country just to come in and have a seat and time to think. There is so much local culture here - down to the carvings.

We went to the Mass in English here on Sunday morning and found it to be a moving experience. The caring community of local families were welcoming and the bishop gave a beautiful sermon. The music is just beautiful and everyone can sing along as the words to the songs and prayers are projected on the wall, which is a great idea and saves a lot of paper as well.
