Welcome from the Dean

The Cathedral of St. Andrew exists to proclaim the Glory of God. We do this by seeking, proclaiming and celebrating the True, the Good and the Beautiful. Welcome to our website, and I hope that it will inspire you to visit in person.

The Sacred Triduum is the culmination of the entire liturgical year, commemorating the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. While we do not spend all of these three days in church, we are called to gather together as the cathedral community for these principal services. On Maundy Thursday we remember the Last Supper; Jesus gives us the Eucharist and tells us to Do this in memory of me and then washes the feet of his disciples. On Good Friday we remember the passion and death of Jesus. We celebrate the resurrection of Christ at the Great Vigil of Easter on Saturday or on Easter Sunday. The Sacred Triduum is one single celebration that lasts for three days. We cannot separate the death of Jesus from his resurrection.

Palm Sunday Choral Evensong

Sunday, Mar. 29, 5:30 pm
The Cathedral Choir
John Renke, director and organist

Choir-Mihoko-IMG_7963The Preces and Responses (from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer) and the Evening Canticles were written by Thomas Morley, a Renaissance English composer, theorist, singer and organist.

Beginning with this evening’s service and continuing through Wednesday of Holy Week, the Cathedral Choir will sing various settings of the Lamentations of Jeremiah, spanning more than five centuries. This evening the choir sings two portions of the Lamentations, composed by Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611). The setting by François Couperin (1668-1753) will be sung at Monday’s Evensong, and a setting by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594) will be sung Tuesday. On Wednesday, the Cathedral Men’s Schola will sing the setting by Peter Hallock (1924-2014) scored for men’s voices and cello. The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra Principal Cellist, Lindsay Groves, will join the Cathedral Men’s Schola for this Evensong.

Godly Play – The Children’s Gathering on the Square

Sundays, 9:00 – 10:00 am

The Loft at St. Peter’s Church   

The program takes place in The Loft at the back of St. Peter’s Church, from 9:00 to 10:00 am on Sunday mornings.  It is appropriate for children who are curious about the bible stories that they hear in church, enrolled in pre-school through the 4th grade of school.  Older children are welcome to assist as “helpers” or participate in “The ROCK” (Relationships, Outreach, Christ & Kids) program located in the Sun/Son room at St. Peter’s.

March  29.  Jesus and Jerusalem:  the story of Holy Week.  The city of Jerusalem is first mentioned in the Bible when Joshua and the Israelites moved into the land of Canaan and tried without success to conquer the city.  Eventually Jerusalem becomes a political and religious capital of the Israelites.  Romans, Muslims, and Christians have sought to control the city and even today the city remains a place of pilgrimage and conflict for Jews, Muslims, and Christians.  In today’s lesson we hear about when Jesus came to Jerusalem for the last time, and the story of Holy Week unfolds.  This week is liturgically observed in a variety of ways in many Christian churches.  Some churches have Stations of the Cross on the walls, marking for meditation important moments in Jesus’ tortured path to his crucifixion.  Jesus’ last days are bound together with Jerusalem and today we will work with a model of the city and trace the events of Holy Week in the structure.

April  5.  EASTER DAY (no children’s gathering)
