Aloha Cathedral ‘ohana,
What a wonderful Sunday, just a few days ago — Our first Eucharist in 11 weeks along with an Ali‘i celebration, all resting in the arms of our Diocesan Convention Eucharist with Bishop Fitzpatrick as our celebrant and preacher. If we ever needed a reminder that we are ‘Cathedral’, this past Sunday certainly offers that to us.
Our life together is writ large as we gather in person and online simultaneously. It seems as though we have our sound connections all sorted through, and the video visuals are also coming into focus. We are able to be together, through the pandemic may keep us physically apart. Be assured, we will continue to adjust as we need and make the variations which are called for — changes are real. Thank God for God’s changelessness!
In just two weeks, on November 2, the day after All Saints’ Day, the church holds space for all who have died, as we honor All Faithful Departed, also known as All Souls’ Day. If you have someone who you carry with you on your heart and in your prayers, someone whom “you love and see no longer,” please send that name to us by Wednesday, October 28 via our Vicar email — CSAVicars@gmail.com. Please note that this is for November 2!
On Monday, November 2, as we premiere our ‘In the Morning’ prayers on Facebook, we will lift the names you offer to us as we begin our time together that day. God’s changelessness holds those whom we love yet see no longer, and for that we offer our thanks and praise.
Please be in touch if there is anything you need~
You all remain in our prayers each and every day.
With aloha and blessings,
