Message from Fr. Moki, April 19, 2017

Dear Cathedral Ohana:

Post-Easter, I have been sitting on my lanai in the mornings and watching a pair of terns flying back to their nest to feed their babies in one of the trees on Queen Emma Square. This morning when I saw them return to feed their young after being out at sea, it reminded me of how Christ returned to all of us in the resurrection that we commemorated at our services this weekend. He went away, and then he returned. In addition to that, the two terns flying in the air and hovering above that tree reminded me of the Holy Spirit and how she is always present in our midst, hovering around and waiting to land on our hearts.

Dear Cathedral Ohana:

The holiest and most sacred time of the year is upon us and this morning I sat in the Cathedral in the company of a street person. Each of us, in our own private ways, sat in prayer. I felt the Christ within her ministering to me and I hope the Christ within me did the same for her. If that did indeed happen, then this truly is a holy Holy Week. And as I left the sanctuary to come back into the office, I was glad to know that because of all we do, people can come into our worship space, say prayers, and feel the presence of God. Furthermore, it’s nice to know that not only are we blessed; we are also a blessing to others. That makes me very proud to be your priest and to serve at the Cathedral. Let’s not lose sight of the way we can and do touch people’s lives.

A Special Mahalo
Last week I received a very gracious letter from Father Malcolm Chun where he submitted his resignation as Canon Pastor at the Cathedral. His last day in the office will be Friday, April 21st and that means that his last Sunday with us will be Easter Sunday. As such, Bishop Fitzpatrick has asked that he preside at the 8:00 Easter service and Father Malcolm has accepted the Bishop’s invitation to do so.

Dear Cathedral Ohana:

The Fifth Sunday in Lent has come and gone and we had 228 people in attendance at five services over the weekend, which is a good indication of vibrancy and vitality in our congregation and parish. For me personally, it just feels so good and so right to be back at the Cathedral and worshipping with all of you. And as we move into Palm Sunday, Holy Week, and Easter; I feel very, very blessed.

Palm Sunday
This coming Sunday we mark Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. Please be aware that the flow of the 8:00 and 10:30 services will be a bit different from what we’re used to. After the Liturgy of the Palms and the reading of the Epistle, we will have a sequence hymn and then go directly to the Prayers of the People. Then after receiving communion we will sing a closing hymn and then take in an interpretation of the Passion Gospel. After that final reading is over, I will give the Dismissal and ask the congregation to depart the sanctuary in silence. This will be different and I thank you in advance for your willingness to try something new. Mahalo!

Holy Week and Easter
We have a full schedule of Holy Week worship offerings next week and the Bishop will be with us at the Easter Vigil on Saturday evening as well as Easter Sunday at 8:00 and 10:30. The Altar Guild will work to create a garden in the ambulatory for prayer and reflection after the Maundy Thursday service and it will be available to you all until 9:00PM on Thursday evening, after which we will have the security guard come in and close the building for the night.

The schedule of services for Holy Week is:
