An invitation to Explore the Holy Scripture in One year Beginning January 1, 2013 and Ending December 31, 2013.
The Cathedral of St. Andrew is joining other Episcopal churches in America and Anglican churches around the world by launching an exciting program called “ The Bible Challenge: Read the Bible in One Year. “ Started by Reverend Marek P. Zabriskie, the Bible Challenge is a handbook of selected daily Holy Scripture readings with an optional meditation and reflective questions to further enhance discernment. All you need is your Bible and a quiet space during your day for reading.
Put yourself in the presence of God each day as you read the Holy Scripture. In the words of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Honorable Rowan Williams:
“We must let scripture accost us on its own terms. And, to that end, we must give room to the risen Christ, through the agency of the Holy Spirit, to address us through the words of the text before us as Word at the heart of the word freely wills.”

June – July 2012 – Outreach Ministries
The Outreach Ministry at Saint Andrews is using the Deans Forums as a means to educate the congregation on the various outreach-ministry opportunities in the community. The goal of the forums is for the Saint Andrews Cathedral congregation to discern the question “What outreach ministry or ministries in the community will we focus our support as the Body of Christ located in downtown Honolulu?” The areas for our discernment are: homelessness, children, human trafficking and foreign mission.
May 13, 2012 – Experience of Homelessness
As discussed in the last Deans Forum allowed us to gain an understanding of Homelessness in the State of Hawaii and particularly downtown Honolulu. We learned that there are different levels of Homelessness. Today’s Deans Forum will focus on the experience of homelessness. Our guest speaker was a former Homeless Veteran, we invite you to join us in the Von Holt Room at 9:15 to hear his story. We also ask for your continued prayers in this time of discernment, that the Holy Spirit guide us in how we should minister to others as the Body of Christ located in downtown Honolulu.
