Choral Evensong in Celebration of the Life of a Gracious Man

The Cathedral of St. Andrew
Choral Evensong in Memory of Lowell Bradford Barnhart

The Cathedral of St. Andrew will remember the life of Lowell Bradford Barnhart in a Choral Evensong on Sunday, February 7 at 5:30 pm. John Renke will direct the Cathedral Choir in C.V. Stanford’s “Evening Service in G,” Walford Davies’ “Blessed are the pure in heart,” and Gardiner’s “Evening Hymn.” The service will not be a funeral nor even a celebration of his life, but will be the fulfillment of Lowell’s one and only wish: To aid in the preservation and restoration of the magnificent Aeolian-Skinner organ in the Cathedral.

Lowell, who spent nearly all of his professional life as a designer in Hawaii, was the Cathedral’s “Verger.” In this role, he not only led the processions of clergy and choir for all the Cathedral’s services for eighteen years, but also took on the responsibility of scheduling, teaching, liturgy planning and liturgy participation, making Sundays an 8-hour workday. At his retirement in 1996, he was bestowed with the title of “Cathedral Verger Emeritus.”

Can you imagine the Cathedral of St. Andrew without the sound of its magnificent pipe organ?  The organ has harmonized hymns, resonated through the bodies of those attending worship and concerts, unified a community, and inspired countless people for generations.

The Cathedral’s Æolian-Skinner is the largest pipe organ in Hawai‘i and is a major asset to the musical life of Honolulu.  In addition to cathedral worship, the organ is essential for weddings, concerts by visiting artists and dozens of community groups, and for the worship and traditions of the St. Andrew’s Schools.

Under the stress of six decades of heavy, continuous use and various assaults ranging from a leaking roof to termites, …..


Godly Play – The Children’s Gathering on the Square

Sundays, 9:15 – 9:55 am
The Loft at St. Peter’s Church

Godly Play 2015All children who have had some experience in a group setting (e.g., pre-school or elementary school) are invited to participate.  We are located in the “Loft” at the back of the St. Peter’s Parish Hall, a short walk across the mini-park behind The Cathedral of St. Andrew.

The program begins on Sunday, September 13, first Sunday following Labor Day, and continues on most Sundays until Pentecost. We attempt to begin at approximately 9:15 am to allow children attending the 8:00 am service at St. Andrew’s a chance to arrive. We conclude a few minutes before 10:00 am to allow children attending the 10:00 am service at St. Peter’s a chance to arrive to church on time.

In the class, we follow a curriculum titled “Godly Play,” which follows a Montessori-style instructional methodology.  The children are told a brief, bible-based story and then invited to work with art materials or items from the story.  We conclude the morning session with a “feast” (actually a light snack) after sharing a small prayer of thanksgiving.
