Episcopal Indigenous Missioner at St. John’s March 24
Our Hawaiian Eucharist celebrating the birth of Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole falls on Sunday March 24, 2019. This is the same weekend as the Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s visit to Hawai‘i for “Renewal 2019.” As part of that celebratory weekend, the Reverend Brad S. Hauff, the Episcopal Church Indigenous Missioner, will be in town visiting and will be preaching at St. John’s on that Sunday. For more about Rev. Huff, please see here. Please join us for this special service on March 24! (And remember since it's a Hawaiian-language service, wear hats and lei if you like!) We'll have a potluck lunch after the service.

We have potluck lunches the third Sunday of every month! Bring your favorite dish!

Altar flowers
If you would like to donate flowers for the altar for Christmas or any day in thanksgiving (for birthdays, anniversaries, etc) or in memory of a loved one, please contact Enid Young.

Canned goods and other nonperishable foods
Please bring your donations. These are collected each Sunday and presented at the altar as part of our offering, then transferred to the needy.

Help needed!
Would you like to serve as an usher one Sunday a month? Ushers not only welcome visitors and show them to their pews; they also help set up and put away the microphones, turn on the air conditioning when needed, distribute materials for the service, and ring the bells. Join the team!
