Mark Your Calendars:
Nohona Hawaiʿi Meeting on Wednesday, May 17th at 5:00. Our monthly Nohona Hawaiʿi meeting will begin with a video the Reverend Moki Hino produced about “The Queen’s Prayer” followed by a business meeting.
New Gospel Reflections program, starting Sunday May 21, 9:14-10 am in the Manger (former Dean’s office). It is based on the African Bible Study process previously used here by Dan Benedict and colleagues. No prior knowledge is needed of the tradition, since it is based on personally interacting with the gospel of the Sunday and its meaning in your life. No long term commitment is needed, just come as you are and when you can.
eNews Deadline: We love to post news of all ministry groups in the Cathedral, as well as events and opportunities of interest to the Cathedral community. However, in order to maintain a regular schedule, we must receive items for each Wednesday’s eNews no later than noon the previous day (Tues.)! Send your news (pictures welcome!) to eNews@thecathedralofstandrew.org.

Dear Cathedral Ohana:
I am happy to report an attendance of 215 people over four services last weekend and I’m grateful to Father Keleawe Hee for joining us at the 10:30 service to preach and preside. Father Keleawe’s being with us gave me the opportunity to sit in the pews and take part in the service as a congregant and it was interesting to see things from that perspective.
The Worship Committee met on Monday afternoon in the Manger and we identified a need for additional acolytes, lectors, and Lay Eucharistic Ministers. An ad to that effect went out last week in our Cathedral eNews and if you feel called to any or all of these ministries, please let me know and I will endeavor to get you trained as soon as possible.
A number of you commented on the sermon at 7:00 and 8:00 that I preached on Keanakolu, the plum farm that my uncle leased on the slopes of Mauna Kea in the 1970s and 1980s. For those of you at the 10:30 who missed it and would like to read it, it is posted on the Cathedral website.

May 14 Knowing Jesus in a New Way (part 2)
After Jesus had risen on Easter, he appeared among his followers in different ways until the time of his Ascension. Two men were walking the road to Emmaus and deeply troubled by the crucifixion of Jesus. A fellow traveler joined them and when they reached their destination, the two invited the third to share a meal. It was not until then that they recognized the third man was Jesus. We also wondered about Thomas, ‘the doubter.’ Jesus had appeared to the some of his disciples but Thomas could not believe because he did not see. Later Jesus came to the disciples again while they were all sharing a meal and Thomas upon seeing Jesus, fell to his knees. Jesus’ response was, “Blessed are those who have not seen and still believe.”
