Congratulations to the Rev. Canon Malcolm Naea Chun

Aloha mai kākou! Please congratulate the Rev. Dr. Malcolm Naea Chun, on whom Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick conferred the title of Honorary Canon for Native Hawaiian Ministry, in honor of the late Bishop Edwin Lani Hanchett, at St. Andrew's Cathedral on Pentecost Sunday, May 20, 2018. He is now officially the Rev. Canon Malcolm Naea Chun. With the title comes recognition of his many years devoted to the development of Native Hawaiian Ministry (NHM) in the Diocese of Hawai'i. NHM continues in the diocese with Rev. Canon Chun, the other Native Hawaiian clergy, and the Commission on Native Hawaiian Ministry.


Many thanks to everyone who has signed up for refreshments for upcoming Sundays. See the schedule posted on the bulletin board in Ho‘okano Hall by the kitchen for when you can help, too.

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 Lois.

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!
