We are a community of saints who worship Christ and serve others. We embrace the Hawaiian values of
Aloha: We love and respect God and one another
Mana: We respect the Spirit of God within each of us and all things
Mālama: We do our best to be good stewards of God's creation
Pono: We strive to be righteous and just in all our undertakings


St. John’s by the Sea Newsletters
From August 2005 to August 2009, we were fortunate to have available the considerable talents of St. John’s member Leo Loyola, who subsequently entered the seminary and was ordained a priest in December 2012. The newsletter he created for us was titled Ho`oulu, which in Hawaiian means to stir up, inspire, excite, and, literally, to cause to grow. A pule ho`oulu is a prayer for inspiration.

These newsletter issues serve as a kind of history of St. John’s during this four-year period, with articles, sermons, announcements, and lots and lots of photos!

We are grateful to Rev. Leo for the inspiration provided by these newsletters, archived here.
