Welcome to St. Andrew's

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 we hope that it will inspire you to visit in person.

Message from Fr. Moki, Oct. 4, 2017

Dear Cathedral Ohana:

I cannot believe that we are in the first week of October and that fall is here. I look forward to the cooler temperatures that are to come along with it eventually. October also means that things are revving up for our diocesan convention. This year it will take place at ‘Iolani School and I will serve as secretary for the seventh year in a row.

Animal Blessing
Please remember that we will honor St. Francis of Assisi with an animal blessing at both the 8:00 and 10:30 services this coming Sunday, October 8th. For those of you who are unable to bring your pets, please feel free to bring a photo instead.

I took part in St. Andrew’s Schools’ animal blessing yesterday and blessed dogs, birds, fish and cell phone photos of cats! Many of you have let me know that you saw it on KHON on Tuesday evening.

Reformation Event
Please note that the Cathedral is hosting a weekend to observe the 500th anniversary of The Reformation and we are working in conjunction with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America in this endeavor. In addition, the Cathedral is sponsoring a Peggy Kai Speaker, Dr. David Lose. Dr. Lose will be here on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The Cathedral offerings for this Peggy Kai event are

  • 3:00PM Saturday, October 14th service in the Cathedral with reception to follow in Davies Hall
  • 2:00PM Sunday, October 15th lecture in the Tenney Theater.

Stewardship 2017: Contemporary Epistles

This year’s Stewardship program began with two “listening sessions” on Wednesday, Sep. 13 and Saturday, Sep. 16r. Fr. Moki will sum up the findings in a sermon on September 24th at all three services.

During the month of October we have planned a series of five “contemporary epistles” from members of the congregation. These presentations will take the place of the customary Second Lesson, and will be presented at all three Sunday services. Here is our next speaker:

Sunday October 8th – Matt Brown
Matt has been an active Cathedral member for almost 15 years. He ushers, acolytes, and counts the weekly offerings and alms. In his professional life, he serves as a full time district administrator for the Hawai‘i State Public Library System. He is a retired Captain, US Navy, and married his long time partner, Dante, at St. Andrews Cathedral in 2014.
