St. John's By-the-Sea Episcopal Church was founded in 1931 to minister to local Hawaiian fishermen and their families. Today our little rural church in Kāne‘ohe has reaped a rich spiritual harvest. While still predominantly Hawaiian, our congregation is an increasingly eclectic mix of people who relish the warmth and informality at St. John's. We strive to live out our Christian faith through our love for God, for each other, and for the world around us.

St. John's by-the-Sea Episcopal Church continues to honor its Hawaiian heritage by singing hymns in Hawaiian as well as English, by incorporating Hawaiian values into all the church’s activities, and by conducting the Holy Eucharist partly or completely in the Hawaiian language several times a year. These services honor and commemorate the lives of our ali‘i. The Hawaiian-language services scheduled for 2016 will be celebrated by the Reverend Malcolm Naea Chun at St. John's on these Sundays:

January 3 – the birthday of Queen Emma
February 7 – the birthday of Kamehameha IV
March 13 – the birthday of Prince Kuhio
May 22 – the baptism & confirmation of Queen Lili‘uokalani
June 12 – the birthday of King Kamehameha I
September 4 – the birthday of Queen Lili‘uokalani
October 16 – the birthday of Princess Ka‘iulani
November 13 – the birthday of King Kalakaua
November 20 – the Feast of the Patrons (King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma)
December 11 – the birthday of Kamehameha V

All are welcome; please join us!

Daily Bible verses in Hawaiian for January 1 through May 31, 2016, have been prepared by the Rev. Malcolm Naea Chun, Paul Nahoa Lucas, Hau‘oli Tomaso, Mahi Beimes, and Ha‘aheo Guanson, and Kawehi Lucas. They are available here for download.
