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 29th – Theone Vredenburg
Theone has been a life-long Episcopalian. She came to the Cathedral as a Priory boarding student, having been baptised at Christ Church Kealakekua, Big Island. She has served as a Sunday School teacher, Convention delegate, and member of the Chapter, Finance, Pastoral Care, and Liturgical Celebrations Committees. Theone is a dedicated acolyte, eucharistic minister, altar guild member, offertory counter, and office volunteer extraordinaire!


The Children’s Gathering on the Square

The Children’s Gathering on the Square is a partnership between the Cathedral of St. Andrew and St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on Queen Emma Street. Both programs meet in rooms at the back of St Peter’s Parish Hall from approximately 9 am to 10 am on Sunday mornings. For more information regarding either program, see this page or contact Beth Young bethcasper@aol.com 808-236-2333.

The Godly Play program meets weekly in “The Loft” and 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. Children in grades 5 and up are invited to participate in The Rock program located below in “Son Room” and meeting once a month.
